Ronald McDonald Family Room®

The Ronald McDonald Family Room® offers all patient families a place to rest and regroup at the Golisano Children’s Hospital, free of charge!

Ronald McDonald Family RoomThe Ronald McDonald Family Room is an extension of the services provided at the Ronald McDonald House. Located in the Golisano Children’s Hospital, our Ronald McDonald Family Room offers parents a place to rest and regroup right at the hospital, just moments away from their sick child. Research shows that staying close by allows parents to better communicate with their child’s medical team and improves adherence to complicated treatment plans.
