Children’s Miracle Network 

For over 40 years, UMC Children’s Hospital has partnered with Children’s Miracle Network (CMN) to help heal children in our region. When community members donate to CMN, they join a coalition of donors who change children’s lives here in West Texas and Eastern New Mexico, and donors can rest assured that 100% of donations stay local. These vital donations are the reason why UMC Children’s Hospital has the only Regional Burn Center that treats children, is designated as a Pediatric Level II Trauma Center, had the first Pediatric Intensive Care Unit, and the first NICU in the region. Further, state-of-the-art medical technology funded by CMN donations mean UMC Children’s Hospital is the most trusted choice for you and your family.
