“Ronald McDonald House to me now is home... it’s family... it’s love. It’s a game changer.” -Drew Hardgrave | RMHC Family
In order to expand our mission and better serve families of hospitalized children, Ronald McDonald House Charities of Northwest Florida will introduce a Ronald McDonald Family Room in the new Studer Family Children’s Hospital at Sacred Heart. Located by the Neonatal Intensive Care Unit on the second floor of the hospital tower, families will be steps away from their child.
The Ronald McDonald Family Room will feature a large open living room and dining room, full kitchen, quiet room, computer area, shower room, and laundry room. It will be a comforting place where families can share a meal, take a nap, and check their email. It will offer a playroom that gives siblings a break before returning to the hospital room. It will feature three bedrooms for overnight accommodations when families need to be seconds away from children who are in critical condition or at the end of their life.
We will be opening this room for our families very soon and we’re working on completing our fundraising campaign. Your donation will bring us closer to our goal of keeping even more families together.
