The need for extraordinary care for Children’s Hospital and Medical Center is growing.
Spokeswoman for the Children’s Miracle Network Jane Phillips echoes the need for people to give to the organization aimed at helping families needing critical care.
“We’re not replacing the local community hospitals,” She says. “We’re the referral point for when there is something that really needs critical, very specialized care. Those kids are referred to us and then hopefully we send them back home to be cared for.”
KLIN’s sister station B 107.3 FM is holding Champions For Children, a two-day radiothon where they’re taking pledges.
Phillips says there is a growing need for care for children at Children’s Hospital and Medical Center in Omaha.
“The funds go to support equipment, programs and services. You’ll hear stories throughout the day in the Lincoln are who’ve been served by Children’s.”
Phillips says the network raises $115 million dollars annually for various services.
They turn no child away if or when they can’t pay the cost.
“The funds enable us to provide the very best care for kids who are in our own backyard,” she says.”
Lincoln has two clinics one for rehab and the other is specialty pediatrics.
