Our Mission

The Children’s Miracle Network (CMN) at UC Davis Children’s Hospital is dedicated to connecting and inspiring community support for the healthiest future of the children and families we are privileged to serve.

Donated funds support grants that directly improve the health and well-being of children, particularly those served by the UC Davis Children’s Hospital and our 33-county service area. These grants support research, a rich culture of endowments to bring the most advanced and best care providers to our hospital; lifesaving equipment, as well as vital patient care services that enhance the patient’s hospital experience.

UC Davis Children's Hospital promotes wellness through patient care, education, research and community service and by providing a regionally and nationally recognized center for innovative children's health care, making available the very best care possible.
