Here, parents with children in the PICU (Pediatric Intensive Care Unit) and CVICU (Cardiovascular Intensive Care Unit) can take a few moments to relax, eat and watch TV. The Ronald McDonald Family Rooms help parents find relief and support by talking with others in similar circumstances, while maintaining the comfort of being down the hall from their hospitalized child.

The facilities feature a living room with plasma TV, games for children, a kitchenette, quiet reflection area, and a family resource library with computers so families can use e-mail and do research.
