Offering a place to rest and regroup at the hospital
The Ronald McDonald Family Room is a place of respite and is just steps away from your child's hospital bed. In the Family Room, families will find a comfortable place to relax, food, personal care items and laundry facilities. Private showers and a quiet room are located nearby.
Watch TV, read a book, work on a puzzle, or just relax. There is no fee to visit the Family Room.
The Ronald McDonald Family Room is located inside Wesley Children's Hospital in Building 1 on the 5th Floor. The room is situated between the Pediatric and Pediatric Intensive Care Units. The daily hours of operation for the Family Room are Monday-friday from 9am-1pm. Depending if we have a trained volunteer or not the Family Room may be opened for more hours.
Our Ronald McDonald Hospitality Cart Program provides bedside amenities and comfort to parents and other caregivers while they remain with their hospitalized child.
Several times a week volunteers make rounds in the Pediatric and Pediatric Intensive Care units with the hospitality cart to provide items of care and comfort to the parents and siblings of hospitalized kids. The cart is filled with complimentary breakfast items, snacks, and coffee.
For parents and other caregivers who are reluctant to leave their critically ill or injured child, the bright and cheerful cart is a welcome sight. The friendly face of the volunteer with the cart reminds families that RMHC Wichita is there to provide comfort during a difficult time.
