Ronald McDonald Helps Celebrate Pediatric Family Lounge

Dec 19, 2017

Cutting the ribbon for the Pediatric Family Lounge at RGH.

Thanks to the generosity of Ronald McDonald House Charities of Rochester (RMHC), Rochester General Hospital (RGH) was able to celebrate the opening of their new Pediatric Family Lounge with some extra special help. 

Ronald McDonald provided the ceremonial scissors to commemorate the space and RMHC’s new partnership with Rochester Regional Health. He also took some time to brighten the days of children receiving care in several pediatric units with some of his signature smile sticks. 

“We were able to deliver a lot of happiness today, not only with Ronald McDonald’s visit, but also with the official launch of the new partnership with Ronald McDonald House Charities.  I am very pleased that we will be able to offer this resource to the children and families at RGH,” said RGH President Nancy Tinsley.“
