Our Family Room at WakeMed
WakeMed Children’s Hospital Dedicates Ronald McDonald Family Room
RALEIGH, N.C. (December 8, 2010) – WakeMed Health & Hospitals is pleased to add a Ronald McDonald Family Room, located in the new WakeMed Children’s Hospital. This is a much-needed resource for families of Pediatric Intensive Care Unit (PICU) patients. The Family Room will be dedicated during WakeMed Foundation’s annual Love Light Tree lighting ceremony on Thursday, December 9 at 6:45 pm.
With comfortable couches, a microwave, a washer/dryer, a TV and computers, the Ronald McDonald Family Room is a private, relaxing space for family members as they endure a stressful life experience. The room with all of its amenities and volunteer staff became a reality due to the efforts of the WakeMed Foundation and contributions of $70,000 from The Volunteers at WakeMed Raleigh Campus and The Volunteers at WakeMed Cary Hospital. Significant funding for operations has also been provided by the Ronald McDonald House Charities of North Carolina.
The Ronald McDonald room, which is located in WakeMed’s new Children’s Hospital on WakeMed Raleigh Campus, is staffed by WakeMed Volunteers and is open from 9 am – 9pm daily. To learn how you can help email Karen Morgan email@example.com or call 919 281-1061.
