Ronald McDonald Family Room

The Ronald McDonald Family Room is a refuge within the hospital for immediate family members who have a child in the Neonatal Intensive Care Unit (NICU) or Pediatric Care Unit. The family room provides a place to rest, relax and recharge from the environment of the hospital while allowing parents to remain near their child.

The family room provides homelike amenities including:

  • Kitchen with refrigerator, microwave, fresh coffee and sweet treats provided by family room supporters
  • Bathroom with shower, linens, shampoo, soap and other toiletries for those who can not make the trip home to shower  
  • Washer, dryer, detergent and a pair of scrubs for those who may not have a fresh change of clothes
  • Dining areas for families to enjoy a meal together or quick snack
  • Living room area with comfortable seating and a flat screen TV
  • Computer workstations so family members can conduct research on their child's condition, keep in touch with family and friends or connect with the workplace
  • Children's play area with books, toys and DVDs
  • Two rooming-in bedrooms - call 719-243-3574 to see if overnight stay is available.
