Volunteer at the Ronald McDonald Family Room, Inova

    Side_Image_edited-1.pngWhen families walk in, we want them to forget they are in the hospital.

    The RMFR at Inova Children's Hospital on the Inova Fairfax Medical Campus is a warm and welcoming space located adjacent to the Pediatric Intensive Care and Cardiac Care Units.  The room also serves the Neonatal Intensive Care Unit and the Medical/Surgical Unit. RMHCDC and Inova look forward to opening a second Ronald McDonald Family Room on the Hematology/Oncology Unit in 2017.

    It is a space where parents and other caregivers can have a snack or cup of coffee, check email, read, talk, or simply relax for a few minutes and remain just steps from their child.

    Amenities include a coffee and snack counter, several computer bays, and comfortable seating. Staff and regularly scheduled volunteers will greet and assist families and make rounds on the floor with a Hospitality a la Carte cart, stocked with snacks and other items for families.
