Children's Miracle Network Hospitals

nurse with child and familyBeaumont Children’s is proud to be a member of Children’s Miracle Network Hospitals, a non-profit organization that raises funds and awareness for 170 member hospitals across the U.S. and Canada. Donations to Children’s Miracle Networks Hospitals stay within the community where the funds are raised to provide critical treatments and health care services, pediatric medical equipment and charitable care. The efforts of Children’s Miracle Network Hospitals provide more than 32 million treatments to kids each year. 

Since 1988, Beaumont Children's has been the only Children’s Miracle Network Hospital in Southeast Michigan. One hundred percent of the donations raised in Southeast Michigan stay here, within our community, to fund exceptional programs and services, vital pediatric equipment and scholarships for families struggling to afford care. 

Beaumont depends on community support to help fund these vital services. Events and promotions are conducted year-round through a coalition of corporate sponsors, media partners and local businesses working together to help kids battle against illnesses in our community. View our impact report to learn how the money raised supported local children.

Children’s Miracle Networks Hospitals help kids of every age and background to overcome disease, injury and illness. These 170 hospitals are on the front lines of research, education and outreach programs. Since 1983, Children’s Miracle Network Hospitals has raised more than $5 billion, most of it $1 at a time through the charity’s Miracle Balloon icon.
