The State of Virginia Grants Chippenham Hospital Provisional Status as Level 1 Burn Center

June 23, 2021

Virginia grants Chippenham Hospital provisional status as a fully operational burn center. Located in Richmond, VA, Chippenham serves as both an inpatient and outpatient facility, and is one of two locations in the state that offers residents and surrounding states with specialized services for burn, wound and reconstructive care. 

In November of 2020, Burn and Reconstructive Centers of America partnered with Chippenham Hospital, becoming the network’s sixteenth location offering wound and burn care services. 

 “I am thrilled Chippenham Hospital is partnering with Burn and Reconstruction Centers of America to provide our community easy and specialized access to burn and wound treatment with our designation as a provisional Level I burn center,” said Chippenham Hospital Chief Executive Officer Dr. William Lunn.

“With best-in-class surgeons, dedicated treatment areas, and a team who believes in caring like family, we are able to be there for our adult and pediatric burn patients when they need us the most.” 

There are limited Level 1 status burn centers in the state and throughout the U.S. Achieving a Level 1 burn center status means that the center can care for all burn injuries, from minor to severe and life-threatening. The staff are trained to treat all degrees and mechanisms of injury including chemical, electrical, thermal, and frostbite. 

“With eight dedicated intensive care beds and two dedicated pediatric intensive care beds, we are equipped to handle a spectrum of burn injuries for all ages,” said Dr. Jones, Medical Director of BRCA at Chippenham Hospital.  

Frank Mullins, Chairman and Chief Executive Officer of Burn and Reconstructive Centers of America said the new center at Chippenham Hospital continues BRCA’s efforts to extend accessible, individualized care to patients across the country. 

 “BRCA’s reputation is built upon our mission statement: Healing Patients. Healing Families. Healing Lives,” said Chairman and CEO Frank Mullins. “We are proud to bring that philosophy and our exceptionally high standards of patient care to the people of Virginia.”
