Health Sciences Centre Offers World Class Refuge for Families

What do you call the world's largest family room (to date) and the first of its kind in western Canada? The Ronald McDonald Family Room.

April 28, 2010 marked the grand opening of this collaborative effort between Ronald McDonald House Charities® of Canada, Health Sciences Centre (HSC) and Ronald McDonald House® Winnipeg.

Located steps from the Neonatal and Pediatric Intensive Care Units, the Family Room provides fresh space and quiet retreat for any family with a child being treated at HSC Children's Hospital.

The Family Room is open from 9:00 a.m. to 9:00 p.m. daily. It provides all the comforts of home, including three sleeping rooms. There is no charge to families who use the common space or sleeping rooms. Volunteers will be available during these hours to assist families and ensure their comfort. A Family Room Manager will be in attendance during regular office hours.

The Family Room is funded through a partnership with HSC Winnipeg (space and utilities) and private donations from generous organizations and individuals. It is managed by Ronald McDonald House Winnipeg.
