When a child is critically ill, parents are reluctant to leave the hospital, yet they desperately need a break from the ongoing stress of beeping monitors and busy intensive care units. A Ronald McDonald Family Room offers a special place of respite, relaxation and privacy within the walls of a hospital. It provides a small oasis of calm and normalcy within the tense, chaotic medical setting and enables parents to be just steps from their child's bedside.
Utah's first Ronald McDonald Family Room is located at Ogden Regional Medical Center, the 1,100 square foot Family Room offers kitchen and laundry facilities, shower area, computer access, and a private family meeting room. The Family Room is staffed by a caring team of volunteers who welcome and orient families to the facility.
For more information on the Ronald McDonald Family Room or to volunteer, please contact our Family Room Coordinator at 801-476-4638.
