Children’s Miracle Network
More than 10 million kids enter children’s hospitals like UMC Children’s Hospital across North America every year. Children’s hospitals rely on donations to provide the best care for kids due to Medicaid and insurance limitations. Since 1983, Children’s Miracle Network Hospitals has raised more than $7 billion, saving and improving the lives of as many children as possible.
UMC Children’s Hospital is a proud partner of the Children’s Miracle Network (CMN), an alliance of over 170 premier children’s hospitals. Because 100% of all CMN donations stay in this area, UMC and CMN have provided state-of-the-art medical technology to the children of the South Plains and Eastern New Mexico.
UMC Children’s Hospital is leading our region in pediatric care. With the support of CMN, the Children’s Hospital treats children with all types of illnesses and injuries, including cancer, birth defects, heart and muscular disease, cerebral palsy, diabetes, and burns.
As the first pediatric hospital in the region, UMC Children’s Hospital has provided cutting-edge, comprehensive services for children for decades. Our partnership with the Texas Tech School of Medicine provides a wide range of pediatric specialists trained to provide excellent care.
The UMC Children’s Hospital is home to the region’s only Burn Intensive Care Unit. Further, we have earned the Pediatric Level II Trauma designation, indicating our hospital’s unique capability to deal with severe pediatric trauma cases. Finally, a nationally-certified child life specialist is also on staff to help children and their families cope with the physical and emotional aspects of their treatment.
Seeing children go home healthy is the reward for the many dollars and volunteer hours given to the Children’s Miracle Network (CMN). CMN asks children treated at UMC each year to share their “miracle story” on the annual KLLL / 96.3 FM Radiothon and KCBD NewsChannel 11 Celebration. These stories provide a glimpse into how CMN and UMC make daily miracles.
