How We Care for You
NYC Health + Hospitals/Jacobi and NYC Health + Hospitals/Harlem are our two facilities that have earned Burn Center status from the New York State Department of Health. The medical staff at these hospitals have profound burn treatment experience. Both are especially well-equipped to treat the most serious burn cases.
NYC Health + Hospitals/Harlem operates one of the few burn units in plastic and reconstructive surgery to reduce scarring that affects African-American patients. NYC Health + Hospitals/Jacobi is a pioneer in employing early surgical interventions to preserve skin and to minimize infections and injury.
