Brigham and Women's Hospital (BWH) is a Level I Trauma Center in Boston that provides emergency resuscitation and care for any injured patient. Multidisciplinary surgical and medical treatment is managed by on-call trauma attendings who work together with trauma specialists in the areas of plastic and reconstructive surgery, neurosurgery, orthopedics, cardiothoracic surgery, vascular surgery, and radiology.
BWH is reverified as a Burn Center by the American Burn Association and American College of Surgeons through July 2015. The Burn Center, which is one of few burn centers nationwide led by plastic surgeons, provides treatment and follow-up for patients with minor to severe burns, as well as those who have suffered from burn injury and seek a better functional and aesthetic outcome. Burn and plastic surgeons work closely with a strong, multi-disciplinary team including occupational therapists, physical therapists, dietitians, social workers, and skilled wound care staff.
