Family Room

A Ronald McDonald Family Room is a scaled-down version of a Ronald McDonald House, placed within a medical facility. In June 2013, Ronald McDonald House Charities of Morgantown opened its Family Room at the WVU Medicine Children’s in Ruby Memorial Hospital. This room allows visitors of patients to grab a meal, take a shower, watch television, and simply rest for a moment while being only steps away from their child receiving care.

Our Family Room Includes:

  • a nursing room
  • microwave
  • refrigerator
  • a bathroom with shower facilities
  • comfortable living area
  • television
  • internet access
  • children’s play area


  • You must have a pediatric patient receiving treatment or care at WVU Medicine Children’s in Ruby Memorial Hospital.

Please note, you DO NOT have to be the legal guardian of the patient to use the Family Room. You DO NOT have to live 50 miles or greater from Morgantown.

To use the Family Room, please ask for a Ronald McDonald Family Room Day Pass from the unit you are occupying.
