Ronald McDonald Family Rooms are located near pediatric units in local hospitals and serve as the model for our growth. They provide support to families and caregivers of hospitalized children including laundry services, snack foods, personal care items, self-care sessions, creative activities, mail delivery and much more.
The family rooms allow caregivers to prioritize their own health and well-being, so they can focus on what’s most important: time close to their child and getting well.
Join us as we expand our reach to help more families in hospitals across NYC.
Ronald McDonald Family Rooms: The Beginning
In 2012, Ronald McDonald House New York knew it was time to take the care and compassion reserved for families in the Upper East Side House and extend its reach further into the communities and across the five boroughs of NYC.
So, RMH-NY created a hospital outreach program to help facilitate this expansion of our programs and services.
By 2015, after solidifying partnerships with eight various hospital systems around the city, Ronald McDonald House New York opened the first ever Ronald McDonald Family Room at NYC Health + Hospitals/Kings County on Clarkson Street in Brooklyn in the spring of 2016.
At Kings County, the Ronald McDonald Family Room serves as a respite for caregivers of NICU and pediatric patients. It is equipped with a kitchen, washer, dryer, and lounge area providing caregivers a place to relax and rejuvenate only steps from their child.
RMH-NY opened a second family room at NYC Health + Hospitals/Elmhurst extending our reach to serve the Queens community.
Both Ronald McDonald Family Rooms at Kings County and Elmhurst are open, thriving, and creating health equity for many members of those communities extending hospitality services to caregivers with children in treatment.
Ronald McDonald House New York has big plans for the future of their family room outreach with new family rooms slated to open in 2023 and beyond.
Stay tuned for new family room announcements coming soon
