At both Florida Hospital for Children and Arnold Palmer Hospital for Children, we have spaces for families to rest and regroup.

Comfort and care beyond the Houses

Ronald McDonald House provides services to families who may never step foot in our Houses through our in-hospital Family Gathering Rooms. Located just steps from patient rooms, these areas give tired parents and family members a chance to take a break while still being closeby.
