WEST HILLS, Calif.--(BUSINESS WIRE)-- Grossman Burn Centers (“GBC”) today announced the official opening of its new Phoenix, Arizona burn center at St. Luke’s Medical Center. The eight bed unit is the fifth Grossman Burn Center and the second outside the state of California.
GBC Medical Director Dr. Peter H. Grossman commented, “It is a privilege to partner with St. Luke’s Medical Center to bring additional state-of-the-art burn care resources to Arizona. Our facility will complement Phoenix’s existing burn center by making more beds available to Arizona’s growing population, and by providing patients and referring physicians with more options for their burn treatment regimen. This is a very positive development for the Grossman Burn Centers, for St. Luke’s, and for Arizona.”
The Grossman Burn Center at St. Luke’s Medical Center provides a comprehensive suite of burn care services, from acute and reconstructive burn care, to rehabilitation and post-treatment emotional and psychological support. The center is under the direction of GBC Medical Director, Dr. Peter H. Grossman. It is managed on a day-to-day basis by Dr. Robert Bonillas and Dr. Anthony Admire, and staffed 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, “We are excited about bringing this world-class service to St. Luke’s Medical Center. The Grossman Burn Centers have been pioneers in burn treatment for four decades and, by integrating their expertise into our existing service offerings, we are providing Arizonans with an invaluable health care resource.”
GBC’s approach to burn care focuses on more than just patient survival. Its surgeons and health care professionals seek to restore patients to as close to their pre-injury status as possible—functionally, emotionally, and cosmetically.
Grossman Burn Centers is the largest plastic surgery-based burn practice in the western United States. In addition to IASIS Healthcare, which owns St. Luke’s Medical Center, 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.
