Lions Burn Care Center

Nevada's Only Verified Burn Center

The UMC Lions Burn Care Center offers the highest level of burn care available in Nevada, providing community members with access to our world-class team of experts. We have served our community for more than 50 years, operating as a nonprofit hospital supported by the Lions Clubs of Clark County to meet the needs of Nevadans and patients from surrounding states. During the past five decades, we have cared for tens of thousands of burn patients. For our team, burn care isn’t an opportunity to make a profit; it’s about providing lifesaving care for the people who need us most.

Our dedicated health care professionals offer the highest level of care for patients with burn injuries of any size, frostbite, Stevens-Johnson syndrome, toxic epidermal necrolysis (TENS), necrotizing fasciitis, soft tissue injures and those at risk for multisystem organ failure.

The UMC Lions Burn Care Center is one of the few hospitals in the nation and the ONLY hospital in Nevada to earn verification as a Burn Center by the American Burn Association and the Committee on Trauma of the American College of Surgeons. This achievement recognizes our team’s commitment to providing patients with the highest level of burn care.
