Ronald McDonald Family Room®
The Ronald McDonald Family Room® offers families a place to rest and regroup at the hospital.
As one of three core programs of Ronald McDonald House Charities, our Family Room is an extension of the services provided at the Ronald McDonald House. Located on the second floor in the Golisano Children’s Hospital, our Ronald McDonald Family Room offers parents a place to rest and regroup right at the hospital, just moments away from their sick child. Research shows that staying close by allows parents to better communicate with their child’s medical team and improves adherence to complicated treatment plans.
Services for Families:
- Bagged lunches
- Coffee, water and snacks
- Laundry facilities
- Internet access
- A seating area with a television
