Ronald McDonald Family Room Nepean Hospital
Take a break from the wards and hospital routine
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 Ronald McDonald Family Room is run by a dedicated team of volunteers, all under the leadership of Family Room Coordinator Josh Binns.
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.
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.

Family Room Programs
Ronald McDonald Family Rooms rely on the work of our volunteers and the financial support of individual and corporate donations.
There are many ways you can contribute to our Ronald McDonald Family Room located in Nepean Hospital.
Make a donation
As an individual, a group or corporate sponsor, you can assist through regular or one-off donations of money, goods or services, by sponsoring a room, or by organising or attending a fundraising event.
A rewarding and enriching experience, as a volunteer, you will witness the amazing difference you can make first-hand by assisting with day-to-day tasks, helping to run activities, or even something as simple as offering a welcoming smile and a listening ear to a family member in need.
Host a fundraiser
Fundraising is an easy, meaningful and fun way to raise money. From sausage sizzles and trivia nights, to raising money on personal celebration days in lieu of gifts, you can give the gift of togetherness to families with seriously ill children.
