The Children's Miracle Network is a national charity comprised of 170 hospitals throughout the United States. Salinas Valley Memorial has been a CMN Hospital since 1989. In that time, over $10 million has been raised locally to help children throughout the Central Coast. Most importantly, all donations stay local for our area children. This would not be possible without our generous sponsors!
