Blair E. Batson Hospital for Children

March 8th, 2010 by

Today is the last day of the 9th Annual Mississippi Miracles Radiothon to benefit the Blair E. Batson Hospital for Children.  Listen to your favorite Radio stations in central and eastern Mississippi and call in a pledge to 1-888-681-5437.  All donations will help make sure that every child in the community will have the opportunity to receive the best medical care when they need it. If you are not near a radio you can always go to Hospitals helping kids and click to donate, every little bit helps.

The Batson Hospital was built in 1997 and houses some of the most state-of-the art equipment that helps to provide the best care and treatment for their patients.  At the Batson Hospital, it is their mission to provide family-centered care that treats not only the disease but also the whole child.  Batson Hospital is also home to some of the only treatment programs in the State.  They are the only children’s cancer clinic, cystic fibrosis program, and epilepsy center in Mississippi.  The Batson Hospital is able to continue to provide care to all patients due to the support they receive from the community.  For more information just go to Blair E. Batson Hospital UMC.
