The Connecticut Burn Center at Bridgeport Hospital
Established in 1973, The Connecticut Burn Center at Bridgeport Hospital is the only dedicated burn care facility in the state.
The Connecticut Burn Center is one of our region’s signature medical services with staff and facilities dedicated solely to the treatment of burns and it is one of only 67 burn centers in the United States verified by the American Burn Association and American College of Surgeons.
The Burn Center treats more than 200 critically inpatients and receives over 800 outpatient visits each year. The Burn Center recently underwent extensive modernization, including patient rooms and treatment areas and, thanks largely to philanthropic gifts from the community, the addition of an overnight Hospitality Suite for families of patients. It is recognized by the American College of Surgeons and the American Burn Association for meeting the most demanding national standards of burn care.
The Center’s multidisciplinary staff includes fellowship-trained burn surgeons, nurses skilled in burn care, physical and occupational therapists, dietitians, social workers and other healthcare professionals. To underscore its unique role as a statewide medical resource, the facility is named “The Connecticut Burn Center.”
