"It would not have been possible to stay at the hospital up to 14 hours a day without a place like the Ronald McDonald House. A place where we always felt welcomed and supported. A place where people in very similar situations lean on each other. A place where people really did care about our day."
About the Ronald McDonald Family Room in The Children's Hospital
The Ronald McDonald Family Room®
The Ronald McDonald Family Room is a relaxing retreat inside The Children's Hospital at OU Medical Center on the sixth floor. The Family Room provides a home-like atmosphere within the hospital where families with inpatient children can have an oasis of calm and normalcy amidst the sometimes stressful, medical setting.
While dealing with the uncertainty of illness or injury, parents of critically ill and injured children are often reluctant to leave the hospital. Ronald McDonald Family Room offers all the comforts of home where families can eat, sleep and relax, while being only steps away from their children. The Family Room staff and volunteers provide comfort, support and friendship for the families while they endure the most difficult times of their lives.
Ronald McDonald Family Room Amenities
The almost 2,000 square feet area contains a living area, kitchen, quiet room with computer access, office area, laundry room, and two bathrooms with showers. It also has four bedrooms available for families of inpatient children to check in daily for naps or later for overnight stays.
Our hours are from 8 a.m. to 8 p.m. Monday through Friday and 9 a.m. to 8 p.m. on Saturday and Sunday.
