Burn Unit

The Burn Unit at Arkansas Children’s is the only burn specialty center in Arkansas, treating adult and pediatric burn injuries.

Our comprehensive burn care team includes doctors, nurses, surgeons, anesthesiologists, advanced practice providers, nutritionists, social workers, psychologists, psychiatrists, pastoral care providers, respiratory, physical and speech therapists. 

We provide treatment and management of thermal, chemical and electrical burn wounds, as well as necrotizing soft tissue injuries, skin sloughing disorders such as toxic epidermal necrolysis (TENS) and Stevens Johnson syndrome (SJS). The Burn Program also has a comprehensive Outreach Program offering programs and information on burn prevention, burn survivors, emergency treatment and care of burns.

Located on the second floor of Arkansas Children’s, the 16-bed critical care and step-down unit are equipped to provide exemplary care to both adult and pediatric burn patients. Two private rooms and seven semi-private rooms are available and all rooms can support ventilated patients. Visitors may wait in the small waiting room located off the unit. We also offer a larger family waiting and sleeping area on the same floor.
