    Who is Children's Miracle Network Hospitals?

    Children’s Miracle Network Hospitals is a national charity that raises funds for more than 170 children’s hospitals. Donations to Children’s Miracle Network Hospitals are used to provide charitable care, purchase life-saving equipment, and fund research and education programs that save and improve the lives of 17 million children each year.

    Every child deserves the hope and healing of children’s hospitals. With the help of a Children’s Miracle Network hospital in their community, children of all ages and backgrounds can receive treatment for every imaginable disease and injury—from asthma and broken bones to cancer and heart defects. Children’s hospitals are also on the front lines of research, education and outreach programs that keep millions of kids out of the hospital each year. 

    To ensure children’s hospitals have the resources they need, Children’s Miracle Network’s partners conduct thousands of special events and grassroots fundraisers year-round. Corporate partners sell Miracle Balloons, radio and television stations broadcast stories of medical miracles, and college students hold Dance Marathons—just a few of the programs generating millions of dollars each year to provide the life-saving care and crucial services kids need.


    St. John’s Children’s Hospital is your Children's Miracle Network Hospital

    Since 1985, St. John's Children's Hospital, in partnership with SIU School of Medicine, has been affiliated with Children's Miracle Network Hospitals.

    All money raised locally by Children’s Miracle Network Hospitals stays at St. John’s Children’s Hospital and goes directly towards the pediatric programs and services for our area's children. Locally, Children’s Miracle Network Hospitals has raised over $8.3 million through special events, sponsor partnerships and the Children’s Miracle Network Hospitals Broadcast and Radiothon. These funds help St. John's Children's Hospital treat more than 50,000 area children every year using the most up-to-date technology, specialized equipment and highly trained medical staff.
