The Ronald McDonald Family Room, Southland Hospital opened in December, 2013 and is directly linked to the Children's and Neonatal wards.
It acts as a place where parents and families can stay together. Parents can step away from the hospital environment whilst remaining only steps away from their child's hospital bed.
The Family Room features four overnight bedrooms with ensuites as well as kitchen and dining facilities, a lounge, laundry and an outdoor courtyard. It is more than just a house and provides a "home away from home" for families who have to leave their community, either short or long term.
Our families are never charged.
