The William and Randolph Hearst Burn Center at NewYork-Presbyterian Hospital/Weill Cornell Medical Center is the largest and busiest in the nation, treating more than 1,300 inpatients and 4,000 outpatients annually. Its research has led to significant improvements in the survival rate and quality of life for both adults and children.

Our mission of providing the highest level of medical care and highest standards of clinical and therapeutic excellence has established our reputation for being one of the most caring and dedicated centers in the world - in fact, every year we are trusted with the treatment of more than 1,000 children. Since our beginning, we have also had a special relationship with the New York City Fire Department. We are honored to be the burn center most relied upon by the city's firefighters, many of whom played a major role in the development of our program. We also work closely with the New York Firefighters Burn Center Foundation to educate the public on fire hazards and prevention.

In addition to the most sophisticated treatment and technology currently available, we offer the expertise of a highly coordinated team, staffed with surgeons, therapists, dietitians, nurses and social workers. Together, our multidisciplinary team offers comprehensive treatment for the three phases of burn-injury care: burn shock, wound care/surgery, and rehabilitative/reconstructive.
