Lions Burn Center At UMC Las Vegas
In 1968, the need for a special care center for the treatment
of burn victims in Southem Nevada was brought to the attention of the Lions. The Lions took on this challenge, and
through a concerted effort, the LIONS BURN CENTER was
opened in February, 1969, at what was then the Southern Nevada Memorial Hospital, now UMC.
University Medical Center is the state-designated Level I Trauma Center for Southern Nevada, as well as the only advanced facility to offer a specialized team of medical professionals prepared to respond to the needs of the severely injured 24 hours a day. UMC also houses the state's only burn care facility -- the Lions Burn Care Center, and operates a comprehensive free-standing unit devoted solely to physical medicine and rehabilitation.
Over the years, local Lions Clubs have donated over
$700,000 to provide advanced equipment and expanded
facilities to make the LIONS BURN CENTER a premier
burn care facility which is recognized throughout the south-westem states.
