CMN helps by:
- Raising funds for children’s hospitals
- Keeping funds in the community in which they were raised to help local children
For over 30 years, UMC Children's Hospital has been a proud
partner of Children's Miracle Network (CMN), an alliance of over 170
premier children's hospitals. Through this partnership, UMC and CMN have
been able to provide state-of-the-art medical technology to the
children of the South Plains and Eastern New Mexico.
Because 100% of all CMN donations stay in this area, the latest
medical equipment and services are being offered right here in Lubbock.
CMN has been helping to make miracles at UMC since 1984.
UMC Children's Hospital is leading our region in pediatric care.
With the support of CMN, the Children's Hospital treats children with

heart and muscular disease, cerebral palsy, diabetes and burns.
As the first pediatric hospital in the region, UMC Children's
Hospital has led the way in providing state-of-the-art care and
comprehensive services for children. As the teaching hospital for the
Texas Tech School of Medicine, UMC has over 30 pediatric specialists on
The UMC Children's Hospital is home to the region's only Burn
Intensive Care Unit, Pediatric Bone Marrow Transplant Program, and leads
the region in trauma services. A nationally-certified child life
specialist is also on staff to help children and their families cope
with the physical and emotional aspects of their treatment.
Seeing children go home healthy is the reward for the many dollars
and volunteer hours given to Children's Miracle Network (CMN). Each year
CMN asks children that have been treated at UMC to share their "miracle
story" on the annual KLLL / 96.3 FM Radiothon and KCBD NewsChannel 11
Celebration. These stories help provide a glimpse into the many ways CMN
and UMC help to make miracles every day.
