Overview

The Akron Children's' Hospital Burn Center provides specialized inpatient and outpatient care for burn victims of all ages throughout northeast Ohio. We are recognized for our commitment to total burn care and a formal system for quality burn-care delivery by the American Burn Association and The Committee on Trauma of The American College of Surgeons.

As one of only two pediatric hospitals in the country that treats adult burn patients, we have a treatment room, physical therapy room, operating room and tub room. We care for burn victims from time of injury through rehabilitation.

We also have a Back-To-School Re-Entry Program that addresses the unique needs and concerns of children who have been burned. Through the program, we educate classmates, friends and teachers about what the child has gone through, how it may feel to be ridiculed, and changes in the child's body image.

We are actively involved in burn research and burn-care training for professional and community groups. In fact, Akron Children’s researchers discovered the method for growing human skin in the laboratory in 1974, a technique that revolutionized the treatment of burns.

We are verified by the American Burn Association and The Committee on Trauma of The American College of Surgeons, which recognizes individual and institutional commitment to total burn care and a formal system for quality burn-care delivery.
