When a child is ill, parents are reluctant to leave the hospital. The Ronald McDonald Family Room ("Family Room") is an area set aside inside the Children’s Hospital to serve as a quiet rest area for family members of children in hospital for treatment and care. The Family Room offers a special place of respite, relaxation and privacy within the walls of the hospital, yet parents are just steps from their child’s bedside. It replicates a home-like atmosphere when a parent needs a break from the hospital environment.
Our Family Room in Children's Hospital, LHSC was visited 36,736 times in 2014 - 2015. That's 100 visits each day!
1,503 showers were taken in Our Family Room to help get family members re-energized for their sick child.
1093 loads of laundry were done in our Family Room helping family members stay near their child for those moments that matter most.
