The Ronald McDonald Family Room will make a huge difference to families using the [Townsville] hospital it will enable parents to stay in a quiet place outside of the ward environment

Whether it’s somewhere for the kids to play or a sanctuary for mums and dads to take a much-needed nap, our Family Rooms are open to everyone in the family.

Chris Fox the Senior Social Worker Paediatrics at the Townsville Hospital says, “The Ronald McDonald Family Room will make a huge difference to families using the hospital it will enable parents to stay in a quiet place outside of the ward environment. The families will be able to cook a meal, do their washing, talk to other families going through similar situations and even have a cat nap in one of the rest rooms. Having the family room will also provide a positive area that will help everyone to cope better with the circumstances and provide a homely feel to the hospital.”

Like every Ronald McDonald House (RMH), the Family Rooms provide a warm and welcoming home-away-from-home but inside the hospital and away from the clinical environment of the wards.
