SALT LAKE CITY -- Thanks to generous donations, the 27th annual Primary Children's Miracle Network Telethon set a new record Sunday.

In just 24 hours, the telethon brought in $2,629,033 for Primary Children's Hospital. KSL personalities worked with countless volunteers and hospital staff Saturday and Sunday to man the phones and take your generous donations.

Primary Children's is the only full-service pediatric hospital in the Intermountain West equipped to care for the total child. The hospital provides the most specialized care to each child, regardless of their ability to pay.

Last year the hospital spent more than $14.3 million to cover more than 14,057 charity-care patient visits.

Every penny raised at this year's telethon will go directly to the hospital to help with patient care.
