|THE BURN FOUNDATION NEEDS OUR SUPPORT|
|The information on this page will help you understand
the importance of our support. We are so fortunate to have a Burn
Hospital in Mississippi, but it takes money to help the burn patients
and their families complete their recovery and help them once again
become a vital part of our communities.
The Joesph M. Still Burn Center at Central Mississippi Medical Center in Jackson, Mississippi opened in 2008 at the Crossroads River Oaks Hospital in Brandon, Mississippi. Since that time, and a move to a new home, many burn patients have been able to recieve care in Mississippi. Prior to thie, it was necessary for them to travel to out-or-state care centers. The Center has continued to experience growth and to allow for further care of burn victims.
The Mississippi Burn Foundation provides supplies, medications and travel assistance for burn patient's recovery; regardless of their ability to pay. The need for assistance contiunes after teh burn patients is released from the hospital; and some of these expenses are not covered. Many are not covered by Medicare and Medicaid. Mississippi Burn Foundation subsidizes with financial aid for expenses not covered and the cost of travel forfollow-up outpatient visits.
|PURPOSE OF THE ASSOCIATION|
