2019 CMN Champions
Blake spent time recovering on our pediatric floor at the St. Luke's campus after having surgery. During his time here, Blake received care from our incredible staff, including our child life specialist, whose position is funded through Children's Miracle Network Hospitals. Child life professionals help infants, children, youth and families cope with the stress and uncertainty of illness and injury and treatment. They help reduce fear, anxiety and pain through therapeutic play, preparation and education.
Grayson was in need of speech therapy. Due to insurance restrictions, he was unable to get the care that he needed to thrive. CMN Hospitals was able to help by providing the necessary funding to supplement where insurance fell short. Thanks to CMN Hospitals, Grayson is making excellent progress.

It may be to the new baby across the street who spent time in our Level II Special Care Nursery, the child next door who breaks his leg, your co-worker’s child who just visited our emergency room or even your own child who maybe just needs a well visit.
