Burn and Reconstructive Centers of America traces its roots to an emergency room in 1978. That first burn patient led to the creation of the burn center at Doctors Hospital in Augusta, GA. Four decades later, the Joseph M. Still (JMS) Burn Center at Doctors Hospital has grown to be the largest burn center in America with 92 total beds, including 36 in the Intensive Care Unit. Patients from nearly every state in America and more than a dozen countries have been treated at the JMS Burn Center in Augusta.
In addition, the JMS Burn Center at Doctors Hospital is the cornerstone of the Burn and Reconstructive Centers of America burn care network, which brings comprehensive, convenient care to our patients. These locations include: Atlanta (2006), Aurora, CO (2017), Bradenton, FL (2015), Brandon, FL (2018), Charleston, SC, (2007), Denver, CO (2015), Idaho Falls, ID (2019), Jackson, MS (2008), Las Vegas, NV (2019), Miami, FL (2012), Plano, TX (2015), Tallahassee, FL (2019), and Valdosta, GA (2010).
BRCA's admissions represent 20% of the total number of annual admissions to U.S. burn centers*
