Visiting the Family Room

Take a break from the ward and be together as a family at the Ronald McDonald Family Room at Wagga Wagga Base Hospital.

Our Ronald McDonald Family Room is a refuge for you and your family while visiting or staying with a child in hospital. Step away from the ward and into our inviting Family Room where there’s a kitchenette with complimentary light refreshments, bathroom facilities and a comfortable lounge with high chairs and tables.

Our Team

Our Ronald McDonald Family Room is run by a dedicated team of volunteers.


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 was purpose built for the free and exclusive use of parents, carers, guardians and their families with children undergoing treatment at Wagga Wagga base Hospital.   


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.
