About the Burn Treatment Center
Nathan Speare Regional Burn Treatment Center has earned an international reputation for excellence in holistic burn care, treating more than 10,000 patients since 1973. We also treat non-burn injuries, such as "road rash," medication reactions and other skin diseases that result in conditions similar to those experienced by burn patients.
Our Burn Treatment Team
Our burn treatment team — including physicians and surgeons, plastic surgeons, pediatric specialists, nurses, occupational and physical therapists, psychologists, social workers, case managers pharmacists, nutritionists, respiratory therapists, patient care technicians, clinical educators, and secretaries — is dedicated to providing the highest quality burn care.
Since Crozer-Chester Medical Center became an accredited trauma center in 1987, the Burn Treatment Center has met the educational requirements set by the Pennsylvania Trauma Systems Foundation. It is the first burn center accredited by the Commission on the Accreditation of Rehabilitation Facilities (CARF). In June 2000, the Burn Treatment Center became the first in suburban Philadelphia to meet the criteria of the American Burn Association's Burn Center Verification/Consultation Program, the highest standard of care for burn patients as approved by the American College of Surgeons.
The Burn Treatment Center is part of the Burn Foundation, a network of burn treatment centers serving people in eastern Pennsylvania, southern New Jersey and Delaware. The foundation's goal is to support burn care and prevent burn injury.
