    Ronald McDonald Family Room

    Offering a place to rest and regroup at the hospital

    The Ronald McDonald Family Room provides a welcoming homelike environment for families, just steps away from their child in the hospital. Any family with a child receiving treatment, whether hospitalized patients or outpatients, is eligible to use the Ronald McDonald Family Room facilities.

    Our Family Room is a comfortable living room fully equipped with TV and radio, a bookshelf, sofas and chairs, a coffee machine and a side table with a desktop computer and free WiFi. Right behind the TV there’s an adjacent dining/kitchen area with a refrigerator, microwave, mini oven, cupboards, dining table with 5 chairs and right next to it a small laundry room. There is also a game and play area which is an excellent recreational area for kids to play and do arts and crafts with our volunteers. When entering this area through the living room, you reach the game area for older kids to enjoy games like Wii and PSP and keep in touch with their friends on the computer. Right next to it you’ll find a nice space with toys for babies, toddlers and kids including a desk with chairs for crafting projects.

    The Family Room is opened daily between 8 AM and 8 PM. Furthermore the Family Room offers accommodation for up to six parents, each room with its own bathroom. Accommodation in one of our bedrooms is completely free of charge thanks to our sponsors and supporters. The bedroom is eligible for use by one parent and for the duration of the child’s stay, depending on availability. We have 3 bedrooms available, each with 2 beds, separate dresser and closet space. Both the bedroom and bathroom is shared.

    The Ronald McDonald Family Room is operated by the RMHC Curaçao Foundation staff. The staff consists of one operational manager that coordinates the Family Room in its entire aspect, also guiding a pool of volunteers that provide hospitality to families in the space during operating hours and that help out during charitable events.
