Rest and regroup right at the hospital

The Ronald McDonald Family Rooms® (RMFR) are special places that offer families of sick or injured children a chance to take care of everyday needs. Whether it’s doing the laundry or just getting a much-needed cup of coffee, families will have the peace of mind that their child is just a few steps away. Guests can also grab a snack or light meal in our fully equipped kitchen, take a refreshing shower, or relax and watch television on our comfortable furniture courtesy of La-Z-Boy.

If you have questions or would like more information on the Ronald McDonald Family Room program, contact Family Room Program Director Julie Arias at [email protected] or 937.641.5875.
