The Hennepin County Medical Center Burn Center provides intensive, acute, and rehabilitative care to children and adults from the Twin Cities and surrounding states who have sustained burn injuries and other complex wounds, including frostbite, necrotizing soft tissue infections, Stevens-Johnson Syndrome, Toxic Epidermal Necrolysis, pressure wounds, and inhalation injuries.

Comprised of a 17-bed inpatient unit and the Acute Burn and Wound Clinic, the Burn Center occupies a 16,000-square-foot space on our downtown Minneapolis campus.

Treating an average of 10 inpatients per day and 20+ patients per day in the clinic, HCMC’s Burn Center is one of the busiest centers in the nation – and also one of the finest.

Outreach and education

Our Burn Center staff are dedicated to educating the community and other health care providers about burn prevention and treatment. They visit local schools and organizations and appear on TV, radio, and print articles.

In addition, Hennepin County Medical Center has a website devoted to Outdoor Safety. One of TV’s favorite outdoorsman, Ron Schara and his dog Raven help host the site that provides tips for "Staying Safe Out There." Look for common sense advice on campfire safety, keeping your cool while grilling, staying up in a deer stand, or cozy in a fish house.
