Narrator: On any given day any of us could have a medical emergency, where our health or even our lives are on the line. In those moments, decisions matter. Where you go, and who you trust with your health, or that of a loved one. We honor that trust at The University of Kansas Hospital, with our commitment to be the most qualified source in the region for time-critical care.
Narrator: The University of Kansas Hospital is the region's only burn care facility accredited by the American Burn Association, and American College of Surgeons.
Dr. Howard: We have hydro-therapy for taking care of burns and dressings; we have dedicated ICUs and a dedicated OR, which is pretty unique.
Kayla: We see these patients every day; it is our specialty, and that's what allows us to have that increased and advanced knowledge, and really provide that best care for the burn patient.
Dr. Howard: We're very good about getting them through their hospital stay, but that's not where burn care ends. We follow these patients throughout their lives even, for months and years to come, to make sure that they're able to go back to functioning in the community and their life.
Kayla: Our main goal is ensuring that burn victims become burn survivors.
Narrator: No one can predict a medical emergency, but we can do our best to prepare for one. And knowing where to find the best care in the region is an important first step. The University of Kansas Hospital: Why would you go anywhere else?
