History of the Arizona Burn Foundation

Originally the Foundation for Burns and Trauma, the Arizona Burn Foundation was established in 1967 by two Maricopa County surgeons: Dr. MacDonald Wood and Dr. William Price along with attorney George F. Randolph. Their mission was two-fold: to assist in the development of a community-based burn center and to respond to the community’s desire for an organization that can receive and earmark donations for burn patient treatment, rehabilitation, and public education. Although not directly affiliated with any hospital, the Foundation initially existed as a support organization for what would become the Arizona Burn Center at Maricopa Medical Center.

Dr. McDonald Wood
Dr. Wood co-founded the Arizona Burn Center in addition to the Foundation, and brought burn care to the Southwest. His leadership serves as an example and every year several young burn survivors receive a scholarship in his name.

Dr. William Price
As a surgical resident, Dr. Price was so moved by the suffering of a child with extensive burns that he helped found what are known today as the Arizona Burn Center and the Arizona Burn Foundation.

George “Fritz” Randolph
As a founder of the Arizona Burn Foundation, Fritz Randolph played a critical role building the organization to serve burn survivors. After many years of service to the Foundation, he was honored with the title of “Life Director Emeritus”.
