Children’s Miracle Network
Children’s Miracle Network Hospitals (CMNH) provides more than $1 million to Kentucky Children’s Hospital each year. The organization, which began raising funds for children in 1983, has contributed over $5 billion to hospitals around the country.
Here in Central and Eastern Kentucky, 45 partner businesses support Kentucky Children’s Hospital through CMNH campaigns, including selling Miracle balloons during campaigns and asking customers to “round up” and leave their extra change for CMNH kids.
CMNH: Providing critical funding
The partnership with the nonprofit Children’s Miracle Network Hospitals provides Kentucky Children’s Hospital with funding for many initiatives, including:
- Life-saving treatments and research.
- Pediatric medical equipment.
- Help for families who need financial assistance.
We’ve renovated and transformed spaces in the hospital and KCH Specialty Clinics thanks to the support of funds from our CMNH partners, with spaces named for partners like Speedway, Walmart and McLane. Speedway and Walmart provided funds for KCH Transports, which provides ambulance transportation specially designed and equipped for pediatric patients.
