Mission Statement

A Ronald McDonald Family Room, located inside the walls of a hospital, is a smaller version of the Ronald McDonald House where we offer comfort and respite for families of children receiving medical treatment. Our Family Room keeps parents within steps of their ill child during a difficult and critical time.

Description

Families with a baby in the neonatal intensive care unit (NICU) at Norton Suburban Hospital are eligible to stay at Ronald McDonald Family Room at no charge. RMFR is staffed by volunteers seven days a week. Families are able to take a refreshing shower, grab a snack, wash their clothes, email their kids at home, research their infant's illness or just get a good night's sleep.

Services & Amenities
