CMN Hospitals

A Child Life specialist plays "patient" as a pediatric patient plays "doctor."

UF Health Shands Children’s Hospital is the CMN Hospital for the Gainesville/North Central Florida, Tallahassee/South Georgia and West Palm Beach areas.

CMN Hospital’s founding pledge – to keep all donations in the area in which they were raised – remains at the core of its philosophy. Throughout the year, a coalition of hospital employees, media partners, civic organizations and volunteers conduct fundraising events, working together to ensure the health of kids in their communities.
