Joseph M. Still Burn Center


Joseph M. Still Burn Center

Joseph M. Still Burn Center (JMSBC) is a large medical burn facility located in Augusta, Georgia. It is part of the Doctors Hospital campus, and serves as a primary burn care center for the Southeastern United States. The 59-bed unit sees admission of more than 2,000 patients annually, mostly from the southeast U.S. Dr. Joseph M. Still, Jr., founded JMSBC in 1978, beginning with one bed in the intensive care unit of Doctors Hospital, eventually expanding to the present state-of-the-art facility, which is currently the largest burn center in the country, and third largest in the world.

Operations

JMSBC operates satellite clinics through Cobb Hospital in Austell, Georgia, and Trident Medical Center in North Charleston, South Carolina. JMSBC also operates several community outreach educational programs designed to prevent burn injuries, especially targeted at children, as they make up approximately 30% of the patient population of JMSBC. There is a Research Center.

Expansion

The current facility will be replaced with a newer, larger building as part of the Doctors Hospital expansion project that will include improved and modern burn operation rooms, a new entrance, and a larger family room.
