Ronald McDonald Family Room®

Offering a place to rest and regroup at the hospital

When families walk into the Ronald McDonald Family Room®, we want them to forget they’re in a hospital. The Ronald McDonald Family Room® offers families a place to rest and regroup right at the hospital, just moments away from their sick child.

Help Children Heal and Cope Better

Research shows that a family presence in the hospital helps children heal and cope better. Staying close by allows parents to better communicate with their child’s medical team and improves adherence to complicated treatment plans.
