St. Vincent to mark 40 years for burn unit

The Regional Burn Care Center at St. Vincent Mercy Medical Center is celebrating its 40th anniversary Monday with a luncheon for burn survivors, community leaders, area firefighters and first responders, and the hospital's burn team.

The area's only burn center opened in December, 1967 to treat acutely burned patients and provide rehabilitative care for all burn victims.

More than 6,000 patients have been treated since the St. Vincent center opened.
