Hospital Programs

walker1Ronald McDonald House Charities of Western New York is expanding their mission beyond the House on West Ferry, and sponsoring Hospital Programs that directly improve the health and well-being of children and their families.

The Family Lounge
Opened in November 2017,  the Family Lounge at the new John R. Oishei Children’s Hospital gives local families as well as those from out of town our signature Ronald McDonald House hospitality.  Families are welcome to stop by for some complimentary nourishment for their mind, body and spirit.

Happy Wheels Cart
Planning to launch in January 2018 at the John R Oishei Children’s Hospital, utilizing our unique Happy Wheels Cart, our Ronald McDonald House volunteers will bring our hospitality directly to families at their child’s bedside.

Keeping Families Close
Research shows that staying close by allows parents to better communicate with their child’s medical team and improves adherence to complicated treatment plans.
