Founded in 1973 during the Yom Kippur War, Sheba’s Burn Center has been recognized as the Israeli national referral unit for burn treatment. With thousands of children treated for burn injuries each year, we aim to expand the center and improve its ability to cater to their unique needs. With your help, we can expand and provide the best care possible.

As Israel’s leading medical center, as well as the national referral unit for burn treatment, Sheba is committed to providing first-class care for anyone suffering a burn injury, from Israel or abroad.

Covering 820 sqm, Sheba’s National Burns Center boasts six private intensive care rooms for severe burn victims as well as two step-down patient rooms that can house 12, all designed specifically to provide burn victims with the best possible care and the ideal rehabilitation environment. The center also includes facilities dedicated to physiotherapy, medical staff rooms, and a private waiting area for patient families. 

Thanks to their unique design, patient rooms and treatment areas provide comprehensive protection against bacteria and viruses, using the most advanced construction techniques along with cutting-edge air/water purification and sanitation systems.

The Need: Ensuring Our Children Receive the Burn Care They Deserve

Burns are a significant cause of morbidity and mortality in children, and are, in fact, most common among children aged 0-4, which account for 78% of all burn injuries. Pediatric burn victims not only require facilities tailored to their unique clinical needs, but also differ in their more complex psychological requirements. Designed with adults in mind, Sheba’s Burn Center requires substantial modifications to answer the special needs of young patients.

To advance our mission and provide pediatric burn victims with the best possible care, we need your help! 

By supporting Sheba’s Burn Center, you will play a crucial role in:

  • Increasing our capacity to treat burn patients
  • Establishing a child-centered facility that will offer dedicated, world-class care to pediatric burn victims
  • Developing new, advanced therapies that will improve pediatric burn care
  • Training additional burn injury specialists
  • Ensuring a compassionate, nurturing treatment environment for young burn victims

Providing comprehensive, world-class care to more pediatric patients than any other healthcare facility in Israel, children’s well-being is at the heart of Sheba’s work. With your help, burn care will no longer be an exception.
