Kendall Regional Medical Center (KRMC) celebrated the first anniversary of its Burn Center on Wednesday, July 31. The event helped recognize the efforts of the physicians and staff who treat burn patients in the center.
As one of only five burn programs in Florida, Kendall Regional Medical Center has filled a huge void in the community. The Burn Program provides the latest in cutting-edge technology and scientific advances in the complex treatment of both adult and pediatric burns.
“We are proud to celebrate our one year anniversary of saving lives and helping patients recover,” said Peter Jude, director of public relations for Kendall Regional Medical Center.
Since opening in July 2012, the Burn Program has had over 293 burn admissions and more than 3,982 patient visits to the burn clinic. The Burn Program has treated patients as old as 95 and as young as one month. Also, patients have traveled from other countries such as Trinidad, Cayman Islands and Haiti to receive specialized burn care.
The anniversary event was attended by former patients and their families who thanked the staff for their compassionate care during their treatment.
