Ronald McDonald Family Room - Fort Smith
In Mercy Hospital Fort Smith
The 3200 square foot Ronald McDonald Family Room is located on the 4th floor of the Labor & Delivery Tower of Mercy Hospital in Fort Smith. The Family Room is designed to provide a place of rest and relaxation to families of children ages 21 and under who are being treated at Mercy Hospital. We support both daytime visitors and overnight guests. Communal sitting areas, dining room, fully stocked kitchen, laundry room, and four bedrooms are just part of what the Ronald McDonald Family Room has to offer, all at no cost to families.
Since opening on December 7th, 2010, the Family Room has served over 3,010 children and families from Arkansas and Oklahoma.
“Being able to stay at the Family Room instead of driving back and forth every couple of hours and not getting any sleep was such a huge blessing for us. The first night we stayed, I actually got 3-4 hours of sleep, which was more than I’d had in the several days total before that. The staff was all very sweet and took fabulous care of us. Even being able to just use the public spaces when we didn’t have a bedroom was helpful because we were able to get something to eat and have a place to relax for a little bit, which helped our stress level.” – Mallory
