The rooms are open 365 days per year and are staffed 100% by friendly, dedicated, and caring volunteers.
We have three Family Rooms in the Southern Colorado region. The first, opened in 2008, is located at UC Health at Memorial Hospital Central and has the distinction of being the first Ronald McDonald Family Room in the state of Colorado. The Room is located adjacent to the Neonatal Intensive Care Unit and also serves families from both the Pediatric and Pediatric Intensive Care units.
Our second Family Room opened on November 8th, 2009, and is located inside the Pediatric unit at St. Francis Medical Center. Families from both Pediatrics and the Neonatal Intensive Care Units enjoy the comforts of home while being merely seconds away from their loved ones. In 2013, two sleeping rooms were added to the existing Family Room, allowing families of NICU patients the much needed opportunity to get a good nightís sleep while being just steps away from their precious little ones.
Our third Family Room, located inside Children's Hospital Colorado Urgent and Outpatient Specialty Care Clinic, opened in June, 2012. Located in the Infusion Center, this Family Room provides families a break from the clinic setting and offers respite from the bedside.
