Ronald McDonald Family Room Bangor

Welcome to Our Ronald McDonald Family Room!

The Ronald McDonald Family Room provides an additional resource to the already exceptional services provided to families at Northern Light Eastern Maine Medical Center. Our Family Room, located on the 8th floor on the pediatric inpatient wing, is your respite within reach.

Research shows providing families with emotional and physical support improves the hospital experience for both the child and their family. Not only does the Family Room provide a respite for families, it also keeps families close by so they can meet with the medical team to participate in the treatment plan so essential to their child’s recovery. Helping to improve the child’s recovery helps to achieve better outcomes.

“We loved going to the Ronald McDonald Family Room for a cup of coffee, a quick bite to eat, and to rest. These short breaks from the stress and worry kept us going and gave us strength.”

“When my son was in the hospital, he was on restrictions and I remember sneaking away to this room and being so grateful for the snacks and the quiet away from all of the machines that were working to keep him alive. Thank you! It means the world to us.”
