Hydrotherapy tubs made possible by the BurnAid Golf Classic

Working Together to Benefit the Regions Hospital Burn Center

The Burn Center at Regions Hospital held a ribbon cutting ceremony on Wednesday, February 25, to celebrate the completed renovation of two of their hydrotherapy tub rooms. The hydrotherapy tubs are used to clean wounds and burns. Hydraulic lifts allow different areas of the body to be washed at different times so that bacteria do not wash over open wounds and cause infection. “The rooms are now more versatile and efficient,” said William Mohr, M.D., director of the Burn Center. “This makes things easier on the caregivers and really makes the rooms more patient-friendly.”

The renovation of the hydrotherapy tubs was made possible by the annual BurnAid Golf Classic hosted by the National Fire Sprinkler Association and the Regions Hospital Foundation. The golf tournament has raised over $580,000 for the Burn Center and funded the entire renovation project. The National Fire Sprinkler Association, Minnesota Chapter is dedicated to educating and informing the Minnesota public of the vital role sprinkler systems play in fire protection and are committed to preventing burn injuries. The Burn Center, Regions Hospital Foundation and the National Fire Sprinkler Association work closely to determine how the money can be spent to benefit burn survivors and their families.
