Hospitals and Partners

The Children’s Television Network is designed to play throughout a children’s hospital bringing alive all of the facility’s televisions with positive and entertaining content. It also serves as a valuable tool that helps hospitals recognize and thank the unsung heroes:  the foundations and corporate sponsors who generously provide their invaluable support.

The Children’s Television Network becomes a way to shine a spotlight on all that is good and as a result, further the mission of healing children. So much more than just a television network; it is a true “network” – creating a system of interconnected people, ideals and resources.  From Celebrities, athletes, corporate sponsors, programmers, fund raisers and most importantly, care givers this network helps bring everyone together for the kids. Below are a few of The Children’s Television’s Network Hospitals and Partners
