About the Ross Tilley Burn Centre

Ross Tilley Burn Centre receives American Burn Association verification
Congratulations to the Ross Tilley Burn Centre staff for receiving the American Burn Association verification.
Complementing the renowned trauma unit at Sunnybrook is the Ross Tilley Burn Centre. The burn centre is a state-of-the-art facility providing tertiary care for the majority of burn injury patients in the province. It is the only program of its kind in the province providing a wide range of services from admission to follow-up and reconstructive surgery. Advances in burn care developed by Sunnybrook experts over the last two decades have helped to improve the patient's burn assessment and treatment.

Roughly 30 per cent of patients treated at the centre come from GTA, 70 per cent come from other areas of Ontario. The majority of patients are transferred from their community hospital to the centre; depending on distance, patients arrive either by ambulance, plane or helicopter.

A comprehensive burn program provides exceptional care. Our patient care team includes burn surgeons, nurses, physiotherapists, occupational therapists, respiratory therapists, speech language pathologists, dietitians, pharmacists and social workers.

Through our affiliation with the University of Toronto, we offer training to future health care professionals and provide an on-site facility for health research activities.
