Authorization of Treatment
The Grady Burn Center is one of the largest in the country. We provide complete care to burn victims of all ages. We treat burns that result from flames, scalds, chemical and electrical accidents. We are the only burn center in Georgia backed by a Level I trauma center. We also provide the majority of the pediatric burn care in all of Georgia.
Patients suffering from traumatic burns are cared for in the center's Intensive Care Unit until stable. Beyond critical care, the Burn Center offers outpatient services for minor burns and follow-up care for wounds and major burns.
Our Burn Center includes:
The Burn Team
The Burn Center is staffed by a highly qualified team of Emory University School of Medicine surgeons and Grady nurses and therapists certified in critical burn and advanced wound care for adults and children. It is because of our exceptional team of doctors and staff that patients from all over the country choose to receive their treatment here.
Visits from family and loved ones are important and help promote healing for both patients and their families. That is why the Grady Burn Center offers open visitation for family and friends. Because treatment of a burn patient can be complex, special visitation guidelines may be specified by caregivers to assist in providing our patients with the best possible care. In our spacious Patient and Family Lounge, families and loved ones can relax while patients receive their care. Resources and amenities available for family and patients include:
