RONALD McDONALD FAMILY ROOM

Providing hope and hospitality in the heart of Cook Children's Medical Center

When families walk into a 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.
