A stay in the hospital can be stressful for everyone, including parents and families of patients. That’s why, at Children’s Hospital Colorado, Colorado Springs, we created a space just for families and visitors. We call it the Ronald McDonald Family Room.
The Ronald McDonald Family Room is a comfortable, welcoming space designed just for family and visitors of patients. A haven from everyday hospital stresses, families can come and unwind – even if it's just for a few minutes.
Family and visitors can utilize the Ronald McDonald Family Room for respite or to grab a quick snack. It is stocked with complimentary food and beverages and is equipped with a kitchen area and microwave, allowing families to prepare their own food. Laundry facilities are also available to help make your stay feel a little more like home.
Inside this family space, there is comfortable seating to help you unwind, a children’s play area to entertain siblings and other young family members, and the room is staffed by a friendly, compassionate volunteer at all times.
The Ronald McDonald Family Room is located on the first floor of our hospital, next to the gift shop. Hours are subject to change based upon the availability of volunteers.
Because the Ronald McDonald Family Room is designed specifically for families and visitors, hospital staff and patients are not permitted inside. Only those with a red apple sticker can enter the room.
