Cat Country 98.7 Raises Over $76,000 for Studer Family Children’s Hospital, a member of Children’s Miracle Network Hospitals

Pensacola, FL (September 2, 2021) – Cat Country 98.7 and Studer Family Children’s Hospital at Ascension Sacred Heart, a proud member of Children’s Miracle Network Hospitals, raised more than $76,000 during the station’s Cat Country Cares For Kids Radiothon, presented by Wind Creek Atmore. The annual event at Cordova Mall raised funds for a new neonatal transport vehicle. 

Cat Country Cares for Kids Radiothon was hosted by radio personality, Brent Lane and WEAR ABC 3 News, Pensacola host, Sue Straughn as well as NewsRadio 92.3 & ESPN Pensacola. The event provided listeners with the opportunity to hear from children and their parents about the high-quality care and recovery they received at Studer Family Children’s Hospital at Ascension Sacred Heart, which serves the Gulf Coast. Sacred Heart

Morning show host Brent Lane said, “The Neonatal Transport Unit is an important part of the overall service to the community that makes up Studer Family Children’s Hospital. Cat Country 98.7 was proud to join WEAR ABC 3 News, NewsRadio 92.3, and ESPN Pensacola to help tell the story of why this hospital impacts so many lives and how it continues to make this community better.” 

“We are fortunate to have such great community partners working alongside a community who cares deeply for others,” said Carol Carlan, president of Ascension Sacred Heart Foundation. “We thank all those who have given generously of their resources, time and talents. You always come through when we need you the most!   

Children’s Miracle Network Hospitals, such as Studer Family Children’s Hospital at Ascension Sacred Heart are on the frontlines when it comes to protecting the health of future generations, but they can’t do it alone. Changing the health of even one child or family creates a ripple effect felt by communities for years to come. 

“The COVID-19 pandemic and its impact on children has demonstrated the value of having a hospital dedicated to pediatrics,” said Will Condon, president of Studer Family Children’s Hospital. “The disease has hospitalized children at all ages — from two weeks old to 17 years old. It’s never been more important to have speciallized pediatric care in our region, and never more important to have the community’s support for our healing Mission.”

 

Since 1983, CMN Hospitals has raised more than $7 billion in unrestricted funds for 170 children’s hospitals across the United States and Canada. 

In addition, the transport unit has a specialized incubator.  Capable of delivering a similar level of quality care as the NICU at Studer Family Wind_Creek_4C_Horz-removebgChildren’s Hospital. Please, join us in sharing hope with the children who make our hospital home. Whether for a day or months at a time, they deserve the best possible care and hope for a healthy future.

What the United Way of West Florida is doing:

We are working around the clock to support Escambia and Santa Rosa counties, as we recover TOGETHER from Hurricane Sally.

United Way of West Florida is here before, during, and after disasters.
