The Firefighters Burn Institute Regional Burn Center at UC Davis Medical Center is a state of the art 12 bed intensive care unit specializing primarily in the care of burn injuries. The staff treats other complex tissue conditions and patients with multifarious wounds as well. Treatment in the unit generally begins during the emergent phase of the injury and continues up into the rehabilitation phase of the healing process. The unit serves the majority of the population in northern California and western Nevada. The partnership that initiated the Burn Unit between UC Davis Medical Center and the Firefighters Burn Institute is an active relationship maintained to this day.
