For Families of Pediatric Patients

Ronald McDonald "House Within the Hospital"
A new 7-bedroom Ronald McDonald House within Golisano Children's Hospital at Strong opened at the end of 2004. It gives parents of our most critically-ill children a welcoming place to rest and recover, while still being just minutes away from their child. In addition to warm and homey bedrooms, guests have access to a private bathroom and shower, a large, fully equipped kitchen, living room, laundry room and other amenities. Perhaps most importantly, families find the support and comfort of others who share the experience of having a seriously ill child.
