Almost 100,000 Americans are hospitalized each year due to serious burns. At the Firefighters Regional Burn Center we help burn survivors return to normal, productive lives as quickly as possible. Surgery, wound care, rehabilitation, and restorative medicine are available to adolescents (12 and up) and adults devastated by serious burns.
Firefighters Regional Burn Center has earned verification from the American Burn Association (ABA) and the American College of Surgeons (ACS), making it the only Burn Center in Tennessee to earn this distinctive honor.
