What:              Crozer-Keystone Health System leadership will host a celebration in honor of two recent national recognitions achieved by the Nathan Speare Regional Burn Treatment Center at Crozer-Chester Medical Center, also known as the Crozer Burn Center:

  • The center’s co-medical director, Linwood Haith Jr., M.D., FACS, FCCM, has assumed the presidency of the American Burn Association (ABA) for a one-year term.
  • The center is the 2017 ABA national “Burn Program of the Year.”

The event will include remarks, refreshments and information about the Crozer Burn Center.

 

In addition to Haith, members of the Crozer Burn Center and Crozer-Keystone employees, the event will be attended by some special guests: former burn patients and representatives from regional fire department and EMS teams.

Members of the burn team as well as former burn patients will be available for comments.

 

Where:            Clark Education Center Lobby at Crozer-Chester Medical Center, One Medical Center Boulevard, Upland

 

Notes:             Haith is the second Crozer Burn Center physician to be named president of the ABA. Charles Hartford, M.D., FACS, was ABA president in 1981.

The Crozer Burn Center has been verified by the ABA and the American College of Surgeons.Founded in 1973, the Crozer Burn Center is the only burn facility in suburban Philadelphia providing comprehensive treatment for pediatric and adult burn patients and their families — from emergency and intensive care to rehabilitation, follow-up and outpatient services. The facility cares for more than 300 patients in each year from Pennsylvania as well as Delaware, New Jersey and northern Maryland. In addition to burns, the team also treats non-burn injuries, such as “road rash” and other skin conditions similar to those experienced by burn patients. The Crozer Burn Center also has a long history of research and clinical advances.
