Leading South Florida in Burn Prevention, Treatment & Recovery

The University of Miami/Jackson Memorial Burn Center located in the Ryder Trauma Center is one of the leading burn treatment facilities in the nation and the only such center in South Florida. The Burn Center provides a comprehensive team approach to the care of burn victims. The clinical team, including burn/trauma surgeons, nurse practitioners, nurses, skilled technicians, occupational therapists, physical therapists, social workers, registered dietitians and psychologists provide care throughout the duration of stay for each patient.

In March 2008, after completing the rigorous process set forth by the American Burn Association (ABA) and American College of Surgeons, the UM/JM Burn Center received notice of successful verification by the ABA. This verification demonstrates a continued commitment to the treatment of patients suffering burn injuries and the allocation of resources necessary to ensure the best outcomes. As of today, there are only 3 ABA verified burn centers in the state of Florida.

The UM/JM Burn Center is currently the only verified burn center in South Florida – and one of just 65 in the United States. This is a mark of distinction from the American Burn Association and the American College of Surgeons that the center provides high-quality burn care from time of injury through rehabilitation. The rigorous set of criteria must be met every three years.
