We are thrilled to announce that our major charity this year will be the Ronald McDonald Family Room Gosford
GOSFORD HOSPITAL, GOSFORD, CENTRAL COAST, NSW
Ronald McDonald Family Room Gosford, located within the Gosford Hospital is a comfortable haven where families can escape the hospital environment. Visiting or staying with a child in hospital can be both physically and emotionally draining, particularly if you have other family members to care for too.
The Family Room is open for everyone in the family providing somewhere for the kids to play, a kitchen to prepare refreshments, bathroom and laundry facilities. The bright purple door is easily found outside the children’s ward and ensures that you are able to remain close to your child whilst taking that much needed break.
Families of both child in and out patients are welcome, and child patients authorised by hospital staff can leave their bed and be together with their family in the Family Room. The Family Room has thousands of family visits per year, but there is always room for your family if ever your child requires hospital medical treatment.
Any family who has a child patient in the Gosford Hospital in the following wards is welcome in the Family Room: Children’s ward, NICU, ICU, Paediatric Outpatient Clinics and Maternity.
The Ronald McDonald Family Room Gosford is a home away from home inside the Gosford Hospital. Open every day, it offers a range of facilities that makes looking after a child in the hospital that little bit easier on the whole family. Set up similar to a home, the convenience of being able to use the kitchen, laundry and bathroom amenities whilst in the hospital or having a comfortable place to take a break in the lounge is appreciated by the families.
