Our Family Room serves parents and primary care givers who have children receiving care on the 5th floor oncology and hematology unit within the Aflac Cancer and Blood Disorder Center of Children’s Healthcare of Atlanta – Scottish Rite. This quiet refuge is 450 sq ft and open Monday – Friday from 9am-9pm followed by 9am-6pm on the Weekends and Holidays.

In contrast to the Ronald McDonald House Program, the Ronald McDonald Family Room serves families who might not be eligible to stay at one of our Atlanta Houses due to distance from home requirements.

Ronald McDonald Family Room Staff and Volunteers provide support and hospitality for those seeking this space of respite; ‘escaping’ the hospital setting for a few moments while steps away from their child’s hospital bed.

Services for Families:

  • Cozy kitchen area with refrigerators, sink and convection microwave oven
  • Complimentary coffee, beverages, pastries and snacks
  • Meals provides by Volunteer groups
  • Comfortable, relaxed seating for individuals to ease their minds
  • Small semi-private area to take a quick moment of rest
  • Wi-Fi access for personal devices
