The Shriners Hospitals for Children health care system has been a pioneer in burn care since we first started treating burn survivors in the 1960s. In fact, some of the most significant advancements in burn care – such as skin grafting and the development of engineered skin – were first made by Shriners Hospitals for Children.
The Shriners Hospital for Children in Los Angeles has enjoyed an excellent reputation in burn reconstruction across the Southwestern United States and Northern Mexico for the last 25 years.
