WESTconsin CU Raises Over $5,600 for Its Local Children's Miracle Network Hospitals

WESTERN WI—During the month of September, WESTconsin Credit Union went casual for kids in support of its local Children’s Miracle Network (CMN) Hospitals—Gillette Children’s Specialty Healthcare and Children’s Miracle Network Hospitals at Gundersen Health System! On Fridays in September with a $5 donation, credit union employees could wear jeans to work. Each WESTconsin office also sold paper icons to display in the lobby. This is the third year WESTconsin participated in the Miracle Jeans Day Campaign. Its employees, members and communities came together to raise $5,669.58—nearly $500 more than last year! According to CU4Kids, with this amount of money, CMN Hospitals can provide one heart monitor. For more information on the impact of a dollar at your local CMN Hospital, visit cu4kids.org/about.

There are more than 170 CMN Hospitals throughout the United States and Canada that all share the same mission—to treat the whole child and provide care regardless of the family's ability to pay. Every charitable donation received directly assists children and their families, and supports pediatric programs, state-of-the-art medical equipment and services that help kids battle diseases and injuries of every kind.

At Gillette Children’s Specialty Healthcare in St. Paul, MN—one of two CMN Hospitals WESTconsin supports within its field of membership—funds are used for state-of-the-art treatments and vital services for kids with the most complex needs in pediatric medicine. It also funds care for patients who are uninsured or under-insured, ensuring Gillette will never turn a child away because of a family’s inability to pay for treatment. In 2016, 950 children from western Wisconsin were treated at 3,826 patient visits to Gillette. For more information about Gillette, visit gillettechildrens.org.

CMN Hospitals at Gundersen Health System is dedicated to saving and improving the lives of children living in the Tri-state Region regardless of where they receive their healthcare. In 2016, 5,074 individuals living throughout the Tri-state Region benefited from CMN Hospitals’ services and care. Funds raised and donated to CMN Hospitals are used to meet the individual healthcare needs of local children and their families. Supported items include transportation assistance, medical equipment, specialty camps and many more patient specific needs. Funds are additionally used to support staff education and training, the purchase of state of the art equipment for Gundersen pediatric departments, and advancing cutting edge research in pediatric care. Last year, 4,430 children within WESTconsin’s field of membership received exceptional care at Gundersen Health System.
