This gift represents donations from Children’s Miracle Network Hospitals’ partners — including Panda Restaurant Group, Walmart Inc., Rite Aid Corporation, and other supporters. Annually, more than $600,000 is raised through the Children’s Miracle Network Hospitals partnership.

These funds have been used for NICView Camera system support in Bakersfield Memorial Hospital’s neonatal intensive care unit, ophthalmology equipment, pediatric ultrasound equipment for the imaging department, and sponsorship of the “Grow Baby Grow” QI Collaborative to improve long term health outcomes for very low birth weight infants by optimizing growth and nutrition in the neonatal intensive care unit.

Children’s Miracle Network Hospitals funds continue to be a vital component of philanthropic support for children’s services at Bakersfield Memorial Hospital.
