One Week. One Cause. 10 Million Kids.
Children's Hospitals Week, March 18-24, is all about helping kids and ensuring children’s hospitals have the funds they need to care for more than 10 million kids a year. Government and insurance programs don’t begin to cover these costs; that’s why donations are vital to children’s hospitals.
“This week is about shining a spotlight on the 24-7, around-the-clock charitable needs of children’s hospitals,” said CMN Hospitals president and CEO John Lauck. “Without additional funding, children’s hospitals do not have the resources they need to care for the more 10 million kids treated each year. We need to do more to fill this gap in pediatric health care funding.”
