The organization, founded in 1982 by the Osmond family and John Schneider, is headquartered in Salt Lake City, Utah. To date, the Children's Miracle Network Hospitals claims to have raised over US$4 billion which is distributed directly to a network of 170 hospitals.
Children's Miracle Network Hospitals raises more than $250 million each year. The funds are raised by corporate partners, like Walmart and Sam's Club and RE/MAX, throughout the United States and Canada. There are 170 children's hospitals affiliated with Children's Miracle Network Hospitals in the United States and Canada. The funds raised by Children's Miracle Network Hospitals flow through directly to participating hospitals.

In addition, Children's Miracle Network Hospitals and many of its member hospitals hold an annual telethon every first weekend in June known nationally as A Celebration of Real Miracles, hosted by Osmond and Schneider, with local cut-ins. The telethon is presented on various television stations in the United States and Canada with local segments varying from station to station. In Quebec, the TVA network produces its own French-language telethon, Opération Enfant-Soleil, held the same weekend as its English-language counterparts; though it does not use any of CMNH's segments, the telethon and the organization is part of the Children's Miracle Network Hospitals.
