Two integral pieces of the recovery process for the burn-injured patient are rehabilitation and support. As a Level I Trauma Center, UMC is committed to beginning the recovery process upon admission.
UMC provides physical therapy, occupational therapy, speech therapy, and social services in both in-patient and out-patient settings. And our partnership with South Plains Rehabilitation Hospital allows us to transfer patients to an outstanding inpatient
rehabilitation facility, if necessary.
