The team of physicians, nurses, therapists, social workers and dieticians in Burn Services works with patients and their families as they go through burn injury care and recovery. It is their goal to help each patient gain back as much of their life as possible after a burn.
A gift to the Miller-Dwan Foundation designated to Burn Services guarantees that this unique, critical care service remains in our region. Your gift will support:
Burns can be minor medical problems or life-threatening emergencies. They are caused by an injury to the skin from heat, cold, electricity, chemicals or radiation. They can affect skin, lungs, and the whole body. All burns can have an impact on how someone feels and moves.
Many burns are minor and can be treated at home. Major or serious burns require treatment in the hospital. Burn injuries can require physical rehabilitation and scar management. Emotional recovery can last long after the burn has healed.
