The Burn Center at Loyola is one of the busiest in the Midwest, treating 700 patients annually in the hospital and another 3,500 patients each year in its clinic. About 40 percent of these patients are children, according to Loyola’s official website.

The Burn Center at Loyola was awarded verification by the American College of Surgeons (ACS) and the American Burn Association (ABA). This recognition is granted only to those programs that have met and exceeded the ACS and ABA standards and review.

Loyola’s pediatric burn and trauma specialists understand the unique needs of children and ensure that each child receives comprehensive, individualized care. Loyola’s clinicians welcome families to be involved in all aspects of diagnosis, treatment and recovery; they are available to answer any questions and address any concerns you might have, according to their website.

If a child is hospitalized, dedicated social workers and a child life specialist are trained to care for their special needs, helping ease the child’s anxiety and managing the emotional effects of hospitalization. Chaplain services are also available at all times.
