“I’m proud of our outstanding team for once again attaining this status,” said Petra Warner, M.D., FACS, chief of staff. “Every member plays a significant role in insuring that our young patients have the best chance of living their fullest life.Pediatric Burn Center Verification is an indication to the public that we are committed to providing the highest-level specialized care.”

To achieve each three-year verification, Shriners Hospitals for Children — Cincinnati must meet rigorous ABA and ACS standards for organizational structure, personnel qualifications, facilities resources and medical care services.
