Orange County Burn Center
The Orange County Burn Center is a team-centered, compassionate, nurturing and patient/family focused center within Western Medical Center Santa Ana. The seven-bed inpatient unit is an intensive care unit: where we care for our patients whose burns require more complex care. The outpatient department of the Orange County Burn Center completes the continuum of care when the patient is on the road to recovery.
The dedicated physicians, nurses, therapists and other medical professionals that make up the Orange County Burn Center team are healthcare providers who are indelibly committed to healing burn patients. In addition to the team above, we collaborate with psychologists, child life therapist, dieticians, rehabilitation therapists and respiratory therapist to compliment the team of care givers for our patients.
We care for patients as young as one day old, to a senior that was 100 years of age. Our patients come to us from all over Orange County, including Southern California. Patients come to us with many different types of burn injuries, most ranging from first to third degree, resulting from heat, scald, electrical, chemical and flame injuries.
We strive to ensure that our burn survivors are returned to their highest functioning level through occupational, physical and speech therapies.
Education and Training:
We educate and train local firefighters, paramedics, hospital emergency personnel, insurance carriers, as well as public groups and organizations.
