BIRMINGHAM - To shine a light on the importance of children’s hospitals and how donations help kids get the best care when they need it most, Children’s of Alabama will participate in the second annual #ChildrensHospitalsWeek scheduled for March 5-11.
There are several ways the community can participate in Children’s Hospitals Week:
“We are excited to participate in Children’s Hospitals Week to create awareness about our services at Children’s, as well as recognize our 2018 Champion, BB, and our community partners who provide great support for our hospital,” said Emily Hornak, director of Children’s Miracle Network Hospitals Cause Marketing and Corporate Partnerships at Children’s of Alabama. "Their contributions allow us to provide research, services and care for kids in need across the state, and we are grateful to have their continued partnerships.”
Children’s is one of 170 member CMN Hospitals across North America participating in the week-long initiative. On average, CMN Hospitals across the country treat 62 kids per minute. For more information, visit https://cmnhospitals.org.
