Children's Miracle Network

On Sunday, May 31, 2009, Zac, Jack, Brooklyn, myself, and hopefully Olivia, will have the honor of answering phones at the 2009 Children's Miracle Network/Children's Hospital of Illinois Telethon at the Peoria Riverplex.

The Children's Hospital of Illinois cares for the sickest and most severely injured babies and children (newborn-18 years old). In 2008, over 5,000 children were admitted to Children's Hospital of Illinois staying over 30,000 days total and over 16,000 children visited the emergency room. Just think - Olivia can claim quite a few of those days! The Children's Hospital cares for each child with the greatest care and love in an environment that focuses on family-centered care and has the most medically advanced equipment and support programs available.

The Pediatric Intensive Care Unit, General Pediatrics, and the Neonatal Intensive Care Unit are top-notch. The NICU was just designated as the top performing NICU in the world for patient outcomes through the Vermont Oxford Network, a network of over 600 hospitals!
