Burns Recovered’s mission is accomplished with the support of many community partners from the healthcare, fire, police, EMS, public safety, education, youth services, and other industries. If you or your group are interested in partnering to serve burn and smoke inhalation survivors in the Midwest, please reach out! We appreciate our partners who help transform burn survivors lives!
Phoenix Society for Burn Suvivors
Burns Recovered has volunteers and staff trained in the Phoenix Society’s SOAR (Survivors Offering Assistance in Recovery) program which trains burn survivors and co-survivors to offer effective peer support to new burn survivors starting in the hospital setting and continuing with individual and group interventions. Currently, services are offered two hospitals burn units in Missouri: Mercy Medical Center (St. Louis) and University of Kansas Heath System (Kansas City).
Mercy Medical Center
Our partnership with Mercy Medical Center (formerly St. John’s Mercy Hospital), has existed as longas our organization. In fact, it was a group of health care providers partnering with former burn survivor patients and their families who founded our organization in 1983! Mercy Medical Center has the only ABA (American Burn Association) Verified Adult and Pediatric Burn Center in the State of Missouri and has been one of the leading Burn Centers in the country since 1967. This Verification is consider the gold standard for burn patient care. Mercy serves patients with all types of burns (thermal, electrical, and chemical) as well as frostbite and other conditions that cause large wounds or skin loss.
The University of Kansas Health System
We provide Peer Support services and offer our adult and youth recreational programs for current and former patients from the Burnett Burn Center at the University of Kansas Healthy System in Kansas City, KS. The Burnett Burn Center is the only adult and pediatric facility in the region accredited by the ABA (American Burn Association), serving patients with the most critical burn injuriesand dermatologic conditions.
