For the first time in the 21-year partnership between The Children’s Hospital at Memorial University Medical Center and Children’s Miracle Network Hospitals, businesses and people from the Savannah area have raised more than $1 million for the local facility.
Since 1992, the two organizations have raised more than $8 million to provide health care for children in southeast Georgia.
“The dollars raised through CMN Hospitals help fund pediatric equipment and programs right here at The Children’s Hospital.
“That means children in southeast Georgia can get the high-level care they need, close to home,” said Maggie Gill, president and CEO of Memorial Health.
The Children’s Hospital offers specialized services for children with 33 specially trained pediatric subspecialists. Last year, The Children’s Hospital cared for more than 60,000 children and adolescents from more than 120 counties.
