Service of Remembrance

Service-of-Remembrance_HS-468x310 (2)The First Annual Service of Remembrance honoring those who have died as the result of a wound or burn injury was at the University of Iowa Hospitals and Clinics on Sunday, January 25th, 2015. The Service was co-sponsored by the University of Iowa Burn Treatment Center and St. Florian Fire and Burn Foundation. There were 36 people in attendance, including 18 family members of patients who have died at the Burn Treatment Center in the past five years. Other attendees included Burn Treatment Center staff, St. Florian Fire and Burn Foundation board members, burn survivors, and Iowa City Fire Fighters.

By hosting such a gathering, we honor our patients who have died, through our care for their families.  We also support our staff by acknowledging their grief, and we strengthen the bond between the hospital and the community.

The 4th Annual Service of Remembrance will be held on Sunday, January 21, 2018 from 1:00 pm – 3:00 pm. The Service of Remembrance will take place at the University of Iowa Hospitals and Clinics, to honor the memory of all who have died as the result of a wound or burn injury.

To honor your loved one, we invite you to send a story, poem, or photo as a tribute that will be displayed at the service. Photos will also be included in a slideshow. Please note: we will not be able to return photos or tributes.
