St. Rose and Children's Miracle Network Partner for Children
Children's Miracle Network is a non-profit organization dedicated to saving and improving the lives of children by raising funds for children's hospitals across North America. Each year, the 170 Children's Miracle Network hospitals provide the finest medical care, life-saving research and preventative education to help millions of kids overcome diseases and injuries of every kind.
Children’s Miracle Network hospitals help kids of every age and background overcome disease and injury - from asthma and broken bones to cancer, heart defects, pediatric AIDS, muscular dystrophy and serious injuries. These hospitals are also on the front lines of preventing disease and injury through research, education and outreach programs that keep millions of kids out of the hospital each year.
Since 1983, Children's Miracle Network has raised more than $9 million for Southern Nevada making Children's Miracle Network one of the largest contributors to the development of pediatric services in the Las Vegas Valley. Most funds are generated through donations from corporate sponsors as well as through special events such as the Torch Relay Walk-A-Thon sponsored by Marriott.
St. Rose Dominican Hospitals partnered with Children's Miracle Network in January 2005. Since then, 100 percent of every dollar raised in Southern Nevada goes to St. Rose Dominican Hospitals' Pediatric Center to provide pediatric equipment, charity care, and health education for children.
"St. Rose is committed to caring for the children of southern Nevada," said Rod A. Davis, President/CEO of St. Rose Dominican Hospitals. "This partnership will allow us to provide the best possible care to the children who need it."

First Annual Children's Miracle Network Radiothon
When a child is sick - with croup, the flu or chicken pox - it tugs on a parent's heartstrings. When a child has cancer, heart problems or needs brain surgery, it touches the heart of every person who hears their story. That's why 720 AM KDWN and "The Coyote" broadcast stories of southern Nevada's "Miracle Kids" during a three-day Children's Miracle Network radiothon in February 2011.
KDWN broadcast live from St. Rose Dominican Hospitals-Siena Campus throughout the fundraising event, and funds raised from the radiothon helped Children's Miracle Network purchase specialized pediatric medical equipment, provide resources for families while their children are hospitalized and provide charity care for families who need assistance.
