I Support CMN Because…

“The CMN's extraordinary support of the High Risk Nursery made it possible for our 1lb., 11oz. granddaughter to grow into a beautiful, vibrant 11-year-old today.
- Bob and Linda Willmschen

“The pediatric services that The Medical Center provide the Chattahoochee Valley are remarkable. The ability to provide such high quality services greatly depends on the support of the community. We support the Children’s Miracle Network at The Medical Center knowing that every cent donated directly ensures these types of services are available for our grandchildren, our family and friends’ children and the other thousands of children that depend on The Medical Center to make them better. Ever since our granddaughter, Ruthie, was born we now call The Medical Center The Miracle Center.
-Rick and Marquette McKnight, former Honorary Co-Chairs of the Children’s Miracle Network

Our local CMN chapter was the critical difference that transformed our daughter's stay in the hospital from ordinary to extraordinary.
– Blair and Lesslie Carnahan,
Honorary Co-Chairs for the Children’s Miracle Network at The Medical Center 2007 – 2008

Our tenure as Honorary Co-Chairs for CMN was one of the most rewarding experiences we have shared. All the funds we raised through our Smiles For Life program stayed in Columbus to help local children. Brightening smiles to brighten a child’s life! What is more beautiful than a child’s smile!
– Dr. and Mrs. James Lopez
Honorary Co-Chairs for the Children’s Miracle Network at The Medical Center 2003 - 2004

As the region's leading provider of healthcare, Columbus Regional Health has touched the lives of most of the children and adults in this region through its comprehensive network of services. Located in the West Georgia city of Columbus, Columbus Regional was established in 1986 as a not-for-profit health services organization, but its roots can be traced back to 1836 when the local hospital was a small wooden building on the banks of the Chattahoochee River.
