New Burn Center at Johns Hopkins Receives $1 Million for new building

March 7, 2007 - Injury Free Coalition for Kids of Baltimore

Mayo Shattuck, the president and chief executive officer of Constellation Energy Group, and his wife, Molly, have donated $1 million toward the creation of a new pediatric burn center at Johns Hopkins Hospital. The unit, which will be in a new children's tower to be completed by 2010, will care for children younger than 15 and carry the Shattuck name.

"Our wish is that children and their families who are confronted with serious burn injuries can find comfort and healing in this unit of Johns Hopkins Hospital," said Molly Shattuck.

The Johns Hopkins Children's Center was recently named the state's pediatric burn center by the Maryland Institute for Emergency Medical Services Systems.

Previously, young burn patients were treated at the regional burn unit at Johns Hopkins Bayview Medical Center, which will continue to treat older teens and adults.

While the new 12-story tower is under construction, burn victims are being treated in an older unit at the Children's Center.
