About the Children's Miracle Network

The Children's Miracle Network began as a 30-bed establishment in 1908 to help children need medical assistance to help treat their conditions. The Children's Miracle Network is part of the CoxHealth system that a Springfield resident started in 1906. Ellen Burge, a local resident concerned with the health and well-being of local children, donated her home to be converted into a Methodist Hospital. The hospital quickly expanded from its humble residential origins to a much larger establishment capable of providing many additional services to children across the region and their families.
