Phoenix, AZ Facility Will Be the Fifth Grossman Burn Center in the Western U.S.
WEST HILLS, Calif.--(BUSINESS WIRE)-- The Grossman Burn Center (“GBC”) today announced it has signed an agreement to establish a burn center at St. Luke’s Medical Center in Phoenix, Arizona. The new burn unit, which will open later this summer, will be the fifth Grossman Burn Center and the second outside the state of California.
GBC Medical Director Dr. Peter H. Grossman commented, “We are extremely excited to join forces with St. Luke’s Medical Center. As both population and demand for additional burn care resources in Arizona continue to grow, there is a demonstrated need for another burn unit in the metropolitan Phoenix area. We believe, based on our experience in Southern California where there are no fewer than eight operating burn centers, that we can address that need by complementing the existing burn center in Phoenix which is currently the only burn center in the state of Arizona.”
The new facility will provide a comprehensive suite of state-of-the-art burn care services, from acute and reconstructive burn care, to rehabilitation and post-treatment emotional and psychological support. The center will be led in collaboration with GBC Medical Director, Dr. Peter H. Grossman and will be managed on a day-to-day basis by physicians on the medical staff at St. Luke’s Medical Center trained in restorative burn care.
St. Luke’s Medical Center Chief Executive Officer Ed Myers stated, “Partnering with the Grossman Burn Center gives St. Luke’s the unique opportunity to expand access to exceptional burn care in Arizona. We look forward to collaborating with GBC and with local fire departments, as well as community physicians and organizations, to bring additional burn care treatment and prevention education resources to our community.”
The GBC is the largest plastic surgery-based burn practice in the western United States. As well as partnering with IASIS Healthcare, GBC has partnered with Adventist Health, the Franciscan Missionaries of Our Lady Health System, Hospital Corporation of America (HCA) and Integrated Healthcare Holdings, Inc. to open burn units in California and Louisiana. In addition to the agreement with St. Luke’s Medical Center, the GBC is also in talks to open a burn center in Texas.
