|Since opening several weeks ago, the Ronald McDonald House Central located in the All Children's Outpatient Care Center is getting rave reviews from families. Here are some comments from the first families to use the brand new facility:
"It has been a godsend to take a quick, hot shower and wash our daughter's fleece blanket."
"I've used the comfy little computer room to send e-mails and check bills while I've been away from home."
"My husband especially enjoyed sitting in front of the TV To catch up on his sports."
"It was nice to get away from the hospital room if only for a few minutes. Sometimes you just need a break."
The Ronald McDonald House Central is designed for day use for ACH Inpatient families from 10:00 a.m. - 4:00 p.m. Inpatient families can get a cup of coffee and a snack, use the computers and TV's, do a load of laundry (until 2:00 p.m.), or just relax.
Rooms are available for showers and/or naps from Noon-3:00 p.m. Walk-ins only, please. Phone reservations are not available at this time. There is no charge for these services.
Please note: Inpatient families that are already staying at either RMH East or West House should continue to patronize the house that they are registered at for any daily needs.
Overnight room requests for all of the Ronald McDonald Houses will continue by phone at (727) 767-7694. Families will be placed at the appropriate house by the office staff.
