Ronald McDonald Family Rooms

A place to rest and regroup, just steps from the patients bedside.

Steps away from their child’s hospital room, the Ronald McDonald Family Rooms offer families a place to rest and regroup right at the hospital.  Ronald McDonald Family Rooms are located within Rocky Mountain Hospital for Children/PSL and Sky Ridge Medical Center.

 

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.
