Children’s Miracle Network Hospitals

What is Children’s Miracle Network (CMN) Hospitals?

Children’s Miracle Network Hospitals® is an international organization that raises funds and awareness for 170 children’s hospitals across the U.S. and Canada. Maria Fareri Children’s Hospital, a member of the Westchester Medical Center Health Network and the children’s hospital for the Hudson Valley and Fairfield County, is your local Children’s Miracle Network Hospital. Donations collected through CMN Hospitals fundraisers in our region stay local and help us continue to improve advanced pediatric care for local children.
