From bake sale to Children’s Miracle Network

Representatives from the Cox Monett emergency department presented a check in the amount of $2,115 to Children's Miracle Network Hospitals at CoxHealth for proceeds from their recent bake sale.

Last year, the Children's Miracle Network purchased several pieces of pediatric equipment for the hospital, including two specifically for the emergency department: a glide scope and a pediatric scale for the new urgent care clinic.

Children’s Miracle Network Hospitals at CoxHealth is dedicated to raising funds and awareness for the medical care of children, birth through age 18. For information about donating to the Children's Miracle Network, people may call 417-269-5437.
