The burn center at VCU Medical Center is better known as The Evans-Haynes Burn Center and is the oldest Burn Center in the United States.
HISTORY OF EVANS-HAYNES
The Evans-Haynes Burn Center at the VCU Medical Center was founded in 1947 by Dr. Everett I. Evans and is the oldest civilian burn facility in the United States.
During Dr. Evan's tenure as Burn Director, many advances in burn care were developed including the establishment of the first civilian intensive care unit and the development of the first protocol for fluid resuscitation post burn. After the death of Dr. Evans, Dr. Haynes directed the burn center for 36 years. The Unit celebraed its 60th anniversary in 2008.
The VCU Evans-Haynes Burn Center is a 16-bed unit with eight-bed ICU and eight non-acute beds. We treat 250-300 patients per year including pediatric and adult burn patients.
The Burn Center serves as the regional resource for the care of acute burns and reconstructive needs of burn survivors and provides care for people injured from fire, chemical, scalds, electrical burns and skin loss injuries and diseases.
