  • When to Call Our Burn Unit

    Most burns are minor injuries caused by hot water, a curling iron, touching a hot stove, etc. But many such burns still require immediate medical attention, even if they may seem minor to prevent infection and threat to surrounding tissue.

    If you suffer any of the following burns, call our burn center:

    • ANY burn to the face, hands, genitalia or major joints—regardless of size.
    • ANY chemical burn.
    • ANY electrical burn.

    When in doubt, call us at (337) 470-BURN(2876).

  • Outpatient Burn Care

    Even the most seemingly minor burns that might not require hospitalization often should receive specialized care to avoid medical complications. That's why we offer outpatient care, which includes a multifaceted approach to ensure healing in the shortest possible time frame. Our outpatient team provides detailed information designed to help patients and their families understand and properly care for their injuries. If you have sustained a burn injury that does not require urgent care or an emergency department visit, please call to schedule an appointment at (337) 470-BURN(2876).
