The Burn Center team is comprised of more than 180 staff members from multiple disciplines, many of whom have decades of service to the Center. These include physicians, nurses, physical and occupational therapists, social workers, nutritionists, psychiatrists, chaplains, aides and volunteers who are well-equipped to handle the physical and emotional challenges of caring for victims of burn injury, survivors and their loved ones. Since its founding in 1976, the Burn Center has had a close and unique relationship with the New York City Fire Department and works closely with the New York Firefighters Burn Center Foundation, which has continuously supported the development of the program to educate the public on fire hazards and prevention. In addition the center has established an extensive community outreach program.
