Compassionate care from acute injury through recovery

The Ascension Via Christi Regional Burn Center is the only dedicated burn care facility for adult and pediatric patients within 180 miles of Wichita. The center is verified by the American College of Surgeons and the American Burn Association.

In addition to burn injuries, the Burn Center treats those with complicated wounds and special conditions that result in the loss of skin. All patient rooms are private and feature state-of-the-art equipment. Rooms designated for the most critically injured patients are equipped with in-room hydrotherapy equipment. Services include treatment for:

  • Thermal burns (flame, scald, contact, steam)
  • Chemical burns
  • Electrical injuries, including lightning
  • Inhalation injuries
  • Frostbite
  • Necrotizing fasciitis and other soft tissue infections
  • Complex wounds, including Steven Johnson’s Syndrome, pressure injuries, and deglovings.
  • Spider and snake bites

An Emergent Outpatient Clinic located inside the main entrance of the Burn Center allows for treatment of minor burn injuries not requiring an inpatient stay. The Burn Clinic provides follow up care for patients after their injury with on-site rehabilitation specialists to assist in recovery.

A specialized Burn Team works with patients and families to coordinate all aspects of care: expert physicians in burn and critical care, nurses, patient care technicians, social workers, case managers, chaplains, dietitians, and therapists. Specialty consults are available to ensure individualized patient needs are met, including the Child Life Specialist and providers specializing in psychosocial needs.

Burn physicians are available 24 hours a day to answer questions and accept referrals/transfers.

The Burn Team partners with Safe Kids Wichita Area,  Wichita and Sedgwick County fire departments, and the Kansas Firefighers Alliance, Inc. in actively promoting community wide burn prevention and treatment education, state and national legislative initiatives to decrease the incidence of burns, and burn survivor support activities.
