Children's Hospital of Michigan earns prestigious Burn Center Verification
After meeting rigorous standards for specific criteria set by the American Burn Association (ABA) and the Committee on Trauma of the American Colleges of Surgeons (ACS), the DMC Children's Hospital of Michigan burn center is now the state's only verified pediatric burn center exclusively dedicated to the needs of children. Last year at Children's, nearly 500 children were treated and admitted for burn injuries, with a spectrum of care that spanned the pre-hospital phase through rehabilitation. Burn Center verification is a mark of distinction and an indicator of high-quality care for the specialized needs of burn patients.

By studying RNA biosignatures in febrile less than 60 days of age, researchers hope to prevent unnecessary hospital admissions, invasive tests and antibiotic use.
