The Johns Hopkins Children’s Center is designated Maryland’s regional pediatric burn center by the Maryland Institute for Emergency Medical Services Systems (MIEMSS). Under this designation, Hopkins Children’s cares for all burn victims under the age of 15 in the State of Maryland and surrounding communities.
The Hopkins Children’s burn team includes specialists from disciplines including critical care and anesthesiology, general surgery, reconstructive and plastic surgery, pediatric surgery, pain management, rehabilitation, infectious diseases, psychology, psychiatry, nursing, child life, social work and injury prevention.
The pediatric burn unit at Hopkins Children’s is part of the Johns Hopkins Burn Center which also includes an adult burn unit at Johns Hopkins Bayview Medical Center.
Burn cases that come through Hopkins Children’s range from minor cases to those requiring multiple reconstructive surgeries and years of follow-up. Regardless of their severity, however, all pediatric burns require specialized care and expertise.
