Philosophy of Care

Healing of the burn injured patient requires a team of doctors, nurses, pharmacists, therapists, dietitians, social workers and many others. It is through collaborative team work that we are able to address the biological, psychological and social needs of every burn patient we treat and thus optimize recovery.
