Children's Miracle Network Hospitals

Children's Miracle Network Hospitals

CMNH Carly

Children’s Miracle Network Hospitals is an international non-profit organization dedicated to helping children by raising funds and awareness for 170 children’s hospitals throughout North America. Each year these hospitals treat more than 17 million children afflicted with diseases, injuries and birth defects of every kind. Children’s Miracle Network Hospital's founding pledge is to put children first in all it does and keep 100 percent of donations in the community where the funds were raised.

Children’s Miracle Network Hospitals has grown dramatically since its founding in 1983. To date, Children’s Miracle Network Hospitals have raised more than $3 billion – most of which is donated one dollar at a time.

Mercy Children’s Hospital is the Children’s Miracle Network Hospital for Northwest Ohio. Mercy Children’s Hospital helps provide care for children with medical needs across 14 counties and treats all children regardless of affliction or the family's ability to pay.

Children’s Miracle Network Hospitals would not exist without the help of our local and national sponsors. Year-round, our partners conduct hundreds of special event fundraisers, sell Miracle Balloons for $1 and hold Dance Marathons to help provide pediatric care for the children at Mercy Children’s Hospital.

Ambassadors
Every year Mercy Children's chooses at least four patients to act as ambassadors for the hospital. Ambassadors serve a one year term (July 1-June 30) and act as the face for Mercy Children's! All ambassadors are nominated by either a staff member or a member of the community.
 
What do ambassadors do?

1) Ambassadors help share their amazing stories of recovery, positioning Mercy Children's as the first choice in our market.

2) Ambassadors attend fundraising events, inspiring others to donate to Mercy Children's.

3) Ambassadors share their unique experiences with other patients facing the same condition or disease, helping reassure them of a bright future.

Nominate an ambassador
 
Do you know a child who meets the criteria above? Use our nomination form to nominate.
 
All nominations will be reviewed and patient families will be chosen to be brought in for an interview with the ambassador selection team. Everyone nominated will not receive an interview. When looking for ambassadors for this year we look at many different factors and determine which children would best meet the needs of the hospital and best meet the qualifications.
 
Patients who are nominated but are not chosen for an ambassador interview may still be contacted in the future by the marketing or development team at Mercy Children's for other opportunities to share their story.

Financial Support for the Poor and Underserved

Financial Support for the Poor and Underserved

To continue the mission of the Grey Nuns to improve the health of the community, especially the poor and underserved, financial support is offered to members of our community in need. Funds have been established to help Mercy’s patients with financial assistance to cover the cost of prescriptions, transportation to and from cancer or dialysis treatments and mammograms.

Mercy Outreach Program

Mercy Outreach Program

The Mercy Outreach Program provides in-home interventions and an array of support services for patients with chronic illnesses in our community. Mercy Outreach was created to help confront obstacles to managing chronic illness, such as social, family and spiritual isolation; financial needs for household and medical expenses; housing issues and lack of community support. Mercy Outreach emphasizes self-management skills in using community resources and connection with social, family and spiritual support. The program takes a comprehensive case management approach to solving non-medical issues associated with chronic illnesses that lead to repeated emergency room visits and hospitalizations.


This is what we were meant to do.

Join our mission to help the poor and underserved be well.
