The Johns Hopkins Burn Center is the only adult burn center in Maryland verified by the American Burn Association. Opened in 1968, the Center has a long history of providing high quality burn care to patients from Maryland and beyond. As a comprehensive Burn Center, we offer the latest research and technologies for the treatment of burn-related injuries that result from flames, chemicals, electricity and scalds. We also provide treatment for complicated skin infections and other wounds. Our services include an inpatient Burn Unit, an Outpatient Burn Wound Clinic and a Scar Revision Clinic.

Our advanced burn care goes beyond the walls of the hospital. Our team of physicians, nurses, physical and occupational therapists, dietitians, social workers, and outreach and injury prevention specialists are available to help patients and their families as they go through burn injury recovery. The Burn Center provides many resources to patients, such as support groups and survivor reunions, as they transition back to daily life.

Patient Story: Pierre
