Pediatric Patients and Their Families For our pediatric patients, the presence of a parent or guardian often provides much needed comfort and reassurance. That’s why our younger patients are provided with a fold-out chair or couch in their hospital rooms. Parents or guardians are always welcome to spend the night using these fold-out beds so they can be close to their child. Ronald McDonald House Charities of Rochester provide affordable lodging and emotional support for any family who needs to be near their child during their child’s hospital stay. Here in the Rochester area, we are fortunate to offer you two Ronald McDonald House locations. The first is a seven bedroom Ronald McDonald House actually located within Golisano Children’s Hospital. This unique environment provides a welcoming place for parents of our most critically ill children to rest and recover, while still being just moments away from their child. Call (585) 276-5437 for more information. The second location is a 20-bedroom retreat located within easy walking distance of Golisano Children’s Hospital on 333 Westmoreland Drive. Van transportation is also available. Call (585) 442-5437 for more information. Both Ronald McDonald Houses provide parents with a warm and peaceful refuge along with the support of others who are enduring a similar experience.
