The Children's Hospital of Michigan Burn Center is one of a few in the nation- to be verified by the American Burn Association (ABA) and the Committee on Trauma of the American College of Surgeons (ACS). When pediatric patients need emergency transport, Children's Hospital of Michigan's PANDA One is Michigan's only dedicated pediatric and neonatal ambulance service and team.
The Burn Center at the Children's Hospital of Michigan provides a warm and caring environment for pediatric burn care, prevention and education.

The center treats several hundred children for inpatient and outpatient care. Children are unique individuals who have specific emotional and psychological needs that often require as much attention as the burn itself.
