A child comes through our doors at UnityPoint Health-St. Luke’s 24,195 times a year - that’s a 70% increase in the number of children served in just the last four years. We have been able to serve and meet the needs of more babies, toddlers, kids, teens and families in Siouxland because of our community’s generous support of St. Luke’s Children’s Miracle Network. With your donations, we fund state-of-the-art equipment and programs that allow more families to stay right here for their child’s treatment.
The 2019 St. Luke’s Children’s Miracle Network Ride for Miracles is one event that helps us continue our work. Please keep in mind the Riders pay for all of their own travel and personal expenses, which ensures that all donations are used For The Kids! In the first year of the Ride, donations helped fund a Giraffe Omni Bed - a top-of-the-line incubator designed to simulate being in the womb for our smallest and sickest babies in the Neonatal Intensive Care unit. In the second year, the Riders were able to purchase Cub Cribs for the pediatric unit. The Cub Cribs are safer, more advanced cribs that enhance comfort for our toddlers. In their third year, they were able to fund the ultimate indoor playground for St. Luke’s Pediatric Outpatient Rehabilitation giving the nearly 800 children they serve each year an environment to learn and grow in.
