Ronald McDonald Family Room transition
The Ronald McDonald Family Room inside Children’s Mercy is being transformed into a 10-bedroom Ronald McDonald House inside the hospital.
We know that our hiatus during construction will cause a temporary gap in services, particularly for ICU families. RMHC-KC will continue to support families with critically ill and injured children while the in-hospital space is being transformed, in the following ways:
- Ronald McDonald staff will be regularly stocking easy-to-heat items in the refrigerator and freezers in both the PICU and ICN. We will also provide grab-and-go snacks in both waiting rooms.
- We will hold overnight bedrooms at one of our three nearby Ronald McDonald Houses for families that have children in the ICUs who would not typically meet our mileage/distance requirement to stay in the Houses. Request to stay at Ronald McDonald House.
- Any family with a child hospitalized at Children’s Mercy, or receiving outpatient care through Children’s Mercy, may visit the Wylie House (2525 Cherry Street) for a day visit, 8:00 a.m. to 8 p.m. Families are welcome to use our play spaces, get something to eat and do laundry. No reservation required.*
