Tell me more about Children’s Miracle Network Hospitals.
Children’s Miracle Network Hospitals® raises funds for 170 nonprofit hospitals across North America to treat severely injured and ill children. When a donation is given it stays in the community, helping local kids. Since 1983, Children’s Miracle Network Hospitals has raised more than $4.4 billion, most of it $1 at a time. These donations have gone to support research and training, purchase equipment, and pay for uncompensated care, all in support of the organization’s mission to save and improve the lives of as many children as possible.
And Yakima Valley Memorial Hospital is the Children’s Miracle Network hospital for Central Washington.
