Visiting the Family Room

Take a break and be together as a family at the Ronald McDonald Family Room at Nepean Hospital.

Our Ronald McDonald Family Room in Nepean Hospital’s Neonatal Intensive Care Unit is a refuge for you and your family while your baby is being cared for in the NICU. Step outside of the ward and into our inviting Family Room. As well as a kitchen, a bathroom and laundry facilities, you’ll find a comfortable lounge and dining area, a mother’s room, quiet rooms for rest and reflection and space for the kids to play.

Our Team

Our Ronald McDonald Family Room is run by a dedicated team of volunteers, all under the leadership of Family Room Coordinator Josh Binns.

Eligibility

We want to make sure families have a home-away-from-home inside the Hospital, away from the clinical environment of the ward. That’s why our Family Room is free and open to all families with babies being treated in the NICU.

Fees

Ronald McDonald family Rooms are free of charge. Thanks to generous donations, families have a space away from the wards to recoup and simply be together.
