A Home Away From Home for Families
The Ronald McDonald Family Room at South Texas Health System Children's serves as a quiet rest area for family members of children who have been admitted to the hospital for treatment.
Like all Ronald McDonald Family Rooms, the room at South Texas Health System Children's provides a homelike atmosphere for parents who need a break from the hospital environment. The room provides an oasis of calm and normalcy amid the often tense, chaotic setting of the hospital yet allows parents to remain just steps away from their child's bedside. The Ronald McDonald Family Room at South Texas Health System Children's is located on the 3rd floor next to the playroom and open daily from 8:00 a.m. – 8:00 p.m. It is equipped with a kitchen, seating area, shower, laundry facilities and three bedrooms where parents can nap.
About Ronald McDonald House
A Ronald McDonald House is a home-away-from home for families of children being treated for serious illness or injury. Many families travel to large medical centers to get the best treatment for their children. Ronald McDonald Houses provide a safe, comfortable place for a family to stay as they face the trauma of their child's illness. A family can stay in the House at a very nominal charge while their child is being diagnosed and treated for illness.
