CMN Telethon Raises Money for Medical Center Hospital

ODESSA - It was another amazing year for the Children's Miracle Network and Medical Center Hospital in West Texas.

The annual telethon on NewsWest9 raised just over $360,000. Despite a rough economy, residents of West Texas and Southeast New Mexico opened their hearts and pocketbooks.

Area companies and organizations also stepped up to the plate in a big way, donating tens of thousands to the effort.

All of the money raised will stay right here in West Texas and help Medical Center Hospital provide state-of-the-art care for children. The hospital will use the funds to continue updating its Neo-natal Intensive Care Unit or NICU.

Last year alone, MCH helped 2,500 kids from across the region.

Medical Center Hospital and NewsWest9 would like to thank everyone who gave their money and time.
