About CMN

Primary Goal

Our primary goal is to provide the services, equipment and training necessary so that your child or one that you know can stay in San Angelo at home or close to home for their treatments. We know how difficult it is to travel three to four hours for treatments and leave part of the family at home.

One hundred percent of your contribution stays at Shannon Medical Center to benefit our Pediatric Unit, Neonatal Intensive Care Unit, Trauma, Emergency Room, Shannon Pediatric Clinic and any other department that could possibly treat a child. Last year we treated more than 16,800 children. These children were treated for a variety of illnesses. They came from diverse ethnic and economic backgrounds and were treated without regard for their family's ability to pay. Here are some examples:


  • Neonatal Intensive Care Unit incubators
  • Haberman feeders
  • Neonatal Transiluminator
  • Bili blankets
  • Districation toys
  • Preemie carseats
  • Neosuckers
  • Cold spray
  • CMAC blades
