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.
