Children's Miracle Network

Children’s Miracle Network Hospitals is an alliance of 170 children’s hospitals in North America which collectively treat more than 17 million sick and injured kids each year. CMNH creates strategic partnerships with businesses and organizations whose individual locations then raise money for their local children’s hospital.

Children’s of Alabama was among the first hospitals to join Children’s Miracle Network Hospitals in 1983 and since then more than $50 million has been donated to Children’s through CMNH. Every dollar raised locally through CMNH campaigns, signature events and programs goes directly to Children’s to provide the best health care possible to ill and injured children from across the state and Southeast by funding research, patient care and equipment. More information is available from Children's Miracle Network Hospitals or on our CMNH blog.
