Visiting the Family Room

Ronald McDonald Family Room extends the mission of Ronald McDonald House Charities Manitoba in its 3,500 square foot space located within the walls of the HSC Children's Hospital in Winnipeg.

The Family Room is open to all families with pediatric patients every day of the week from 9 am - 9 pm. The area is a warm, comforting place where you can rest and have a break from the hospital environment.

The Family Room offers the following comforts of home:

  • Bathroom with a shower
  • Laundry facilities
  • Full kitchen for cooking and dining
  • Living room with television
  • Children's play area
  • Computers with Internet and Wi-Fi
  • Three sleeping rooms available for families (referral required)
  • Napping lounge available for families

Located within HSC Children's Hospital, just a short walk from PICU and NICU, the Ronald McDonald Family Room can be found at Yellow Deer Zone, Level 3 (CE-3 - 840 Sherbrook Street). The Family Room is one more way we help to keep families together.


Staying at the Family Room

Three sleeping rooms are available on a priority basis to families in PICU, NICU and other areas of HSC Children's Hospital if space permits. Rooms are reserved for families with the most critical needs and cannot be booked in advance or for any length of time. There is no charge to use the sleeping rooms. To receive a daily referral you must talk to the charge nurse or social worker in your hospital unit.
