With the up gradation of the existing Burns Unit at Civil Hospital to a full-fledged Burns Care Centre and Centre of Excellence, now, there is new hope for burn patients. Work on the relocated premises of the Centre at the more spacious Jubilee Block within the Civil Hospital premises is complete and in operation.
The new Burns Centre is a state-of-the-art 60-bedded (extendable up to 66 beds) facility with most modern operation theatres, emergency treatment facility, ICU, 24-hour clinical laboratory, skin banks, epithelial culture and bacteriological labs and recourse centre. It offers free diagnostic and treatment facilities to poor and needy patients and is a source of training and sustenance for those engaged in the treatment of burn patients. The new location is within reach of every facility of Civil Hospital and training control of Dow University of Health Sciences and its faculty. It is most ideally convenient for receiving and providing the best possible medical care in addition to teaching and training facility in a symbolic public – private partnership – yet another appreciable land mark with aesthetic interest of beautiful building with essential facilities in it.
