HASBRO CHILDREN’S HOSPITAL CELEBRATES RE/MAX MIRACLE AGENTS DURING AUGUST “MONTH OF MIRACLES”
Wednesday, August 21, 2013

RE/MAX Agents Help Fund Needed Pediatric Treatment, Equipment and Programs

 

Providence, R.I. —Hasbro Children’s Hospital, a member of Children’s Miracle Network Hospitals, is recognizing the philanthropic work of RE/MAX Miracle Agents operating in Rhode Island and Southeastern Massachusetts by celebrating the second annual “Month of Miracles.” RE/MAX Agents and Offices have collectively raised $166,103 to provide medical services and needed care to the 100,000 children treated annually at Hasbro Children’s Hospital.

 

Since 1992, RE/MAX and Children’s Miracle Network Hospitals across the U.S. and Canada have partnered to raise more than $123 million for 170 member hospitals across North America, with local hospitals determining how funds are needed most. RE/MAX Miracle Agents include dedicated Hasbro Children’s Hospital supporters who pledge to make a donation after each property sale. Miracle Home yard signs help agents identify themselves as supporters of local pediatric giving. Beginning this summer, those interested in buying or selling a home can also look for the “Miracle Balloon” logo when searching agents at www.remax.com.

 

In 2012, Hasbro Children's Hospital unveiled the results of an $800,000 renovation project that revamped all of its pediatric operating suites. The five operating rooms and a video endoscopy room were outfitted with significant upgrades that allow for completely hard-wired interface and digital projection using an innovative ‘boom’ technology. “The renovation project allows Hasbro Children’s Hospital to offer advanced endoscopic surgery, enhanced neurosurgical procedures through use of monitors and microscopes, and better patient and staff flow,” said Dr. Thomas F. Tracy, Jr., pediatric surgeon-in-chief of Hasbro Children’s Hospital.

 

“Miracle Agents and Miracle Offices are unique in that they recognize the value of two things: the comfort a home can provide, and the need for sick and injured children to get the best care possible,” said John Lauck, Children’s Miracle Network Hospitals president and CEO. “The RE/MAX Network’s dedication to our member hospitals like Hasbro Children’s Hospital is reflected in the donations made through Miracle Home and Miracle Property transactions, and other community fundraisers and events. We are excited to see what miracles may come in this second annual Miracle Month of recognition and awareness.”

Champions and family members convened in D.C. to share their stories with state and federal agency representatives, visited Arlington National Cemetery and toured other historical landmarks. Champions also traditionally visit the White House, where, in previous years, they have met with Presidents Bill Clinton, George W. Bush and Barack Obama.
