Why: One year after opening The Aera Clinic, SJCH’s outpatient Grossman Burn Center, the hospital is excited to announce the opening of the inpatient Grossman Burn Center. Located on the third floor of the hospital, the inpatient burn center is a four-bed unit offering the latest in burn-care technology, including a hydrotherapy treatment room and Nintendo Wii rehab. In just over a year, the SJCH Grossman Burn Center has filled a huge health care void by caring for nearly 400 patients and their families. Although the inpatient burn center has been operating out of the hospital’s regular ICU, this grand opening will celebrate completion of the permanent location. Tours for public will be available following the press conference.
