  • Description
    UMC’s Timothy J. Harnar Regional Burn Center is one of only four certified burn centers in Texas, and is one of only 47 regional burn centers in the United States. UMC’s coverage area encompasses a vast expanse of New Mexico, Western Oklahoma, Southern Kansas and all of West Texas making it the third largest geographic area of all regional burn centers in the country. The Timothy J. Harnar Regional Burn Center is also the 11th busiest regional burn center. In 2011 we treated 350 major burns, 250 minor/outpatient burns, more than 300 life threatening wounds, and we had over 1,650 clinic visits. Our burn center is also one of only three units continually verified since 1993.
    Today, the Timothy J. Harnar remains the only burn center in the region. It serves patients from throughout the Southwest and is known nationally as a leader in the care and treatment of burn patients. Through our affiliation with Texas Tech's School of Medicine, UMC's Burn Center also is a leading force in research on burn treatment.
    The burn service at UMC's Timothy J. Harnar Burn Center is verified by the American Burn Association and by the Committee on Trauma of the American College of Surgeons. This achievement recognizes the burn center's dedication to providing optimal care for our patients.
    The primary mission of University Medical Center's Timothy J. Harnar Burn Center is to meet the needs of this region by providing an unequaled level of care in the treatment of all facets of burn injury. This is accomplished through a multidisciplinary effort that endeavors to consider all aspects of a person's life, including his or her physical, social, spiritual and psychological well-being.
    Our Secondary mission is to continue to increase the body of scientific knowledge available to all burn centers through our innovative research activities. Finally, we hope to decrease the incidence of burn injury through education of the public by continuing our community outreach programs.
