RONALD MCDONALD FAMILY ROOM
Providing hope and hospitality in the heart of Cook Children’s Medical Center
COVID-19 Updates for our Programs: During this time, common spaces in the House, the Day Program, the Ronald McDonald Family Room and Hospitality Carts are suspended. Please check back for further updates.
When families visit the Ronald McDonald Family Room, we want them to forget they’re in a hospital. Just steps away from the pediatric intensive care unit at Cook Children’s Medical Center, the Ronald McDonald Family Room offers 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.
