On Tuesday, December 1, Children’s Hospital Foundation officially kicked off the holiday season with the introduction of our 2016 Miracle Children. The event — held in the Medical Mall of our Baroness Hospital — included the announcement of the children, a parade of presents, the tree lighting, a menorah lighting, music, a magic show, and even a visit from Santa!
Children’s Hospital at Erlanger is a proud partner of Children’s Miracle Network Hospitals — one of 170 children’s hospitals in the United States and Canada to hold this designation. The mission of Children’s Miracle Network Hospitals is to increase funds and awareness for local children’s hospitals.
Patient ambassadors for each Children’s Miracle Network Hospital are known as Miracle Kids. In our region, Miracle Kids represent the healing work of Children’s Hospital at Erlanger. Each year, nurses, physicians, and other staff from all areas of Children’s Hospital nominate patients they believe are true Miracles. These are children who have battled bravely and overcome the odds. They display a unique spirit that touches lives all around them.
It is our joy to add to our Miracle Family each year, and it is our pleasure to share each child’s amazing story here.
