Burn Center Marks Its Anniversary

Miami Heat mascot Burnie helps celebrate a Kendall Regional Medical Center “first”.

Recently Kendall Regional Medical Center celebrated the one year anniversary of its Burn Center, recognizing the efforts of its specialty physicians and staff. The anniversary event was also attended by former patients and their families who thanked the staff for their compassionate care during their treatment.

As one of only five burn programs in Florida, KRMC fills a major void in our community by providing 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 first year anniversary of saving lives and helping patients recover, said Peter Jude, KRMC Director of Public Relations.

Since opening in July 2012, the center logged more than 293 burn admissions and more than 3,982 patient visits, treating patients as old as 95 and as young as one month. Patients have traveled from countries such as Trinidad, Cayman Islands and Haiti to receive specialized burn care.
