University of Miami/Jackson Memorial Burn Center Receives Re-Verification
The Burn Center at the University of Miami/Jackson Memorial Hospital has received re-verification by the American Burn Association and the American College of Surgeons Committee on Trauma. This achievement recognizes the burn center’s dedication to providing compassionate, leading-edge care to patients.
“The burn center continues as a Center of Excellence, meeting the high standards of the American Burn Association because of the quality of experts that we have in every discipline of burn care, including the physicians, nurses, psychologists, physical and occupational therapists, social workers, and support staff,” said Louis R. Pizano, M.D., M.B.A., chief of the Division of Burns. “I am very proud to be part of this amazing team.”
The verification/consultation program, established in 1995 by the American Burn Association and American College of Surgeons, verifies the center’s commitment to providing the highest quality of care to patients. To be verified, burn centers undergo a rigorous onsite review by a team of experienced surgeons.
The UM/Jackson center is the only verified burn center in South Florida and one of only three in the state of Florida.
