The opening of the North Carolina Jaycee Burn Center on February 23, 1981 was the culmination of one man's mission. John Stackhouse owned an electrical contracting company in Goldsboro, and he saw first-hand the devastation that burns can create when several of his workers suffered severe electrical burns in the 1960s.
Today, the Burn Center is a 21-bed facility that is one of the few in the nation that is American Burn Association verified for adult and pediatric care. The Burn Center's state-of-the-art facilities in UNC Hospitals and experienced staff provide patients with the best in clinical treatment and aftercare.
The continued support of citizens across North Carolina means that the Burn Center can remain a beacon of hope for burn survivors.
