Ronald McDonald Family Room

A place to rest and regroup, just steps from your child's bedside.

Down the hall from their child’s hospital room, the Ronald McDonald Family Room offers families a place to rest and regroup right at the hospital. Our Ronald McDonald Family Room is located within Rocky Mountain Hospital for Children/PSL near the neonatal intensive care unit.

Help Children Heal Faster and Cope Better

Research shows that a family presence in the hospital helps children heal faster and cope better. Staying close by allows parents to better communicate with their child’s medical team and improves adherence to complicated treatment plans.
