Ronald McDonald Family Room

Keeping families close

Ronald McDonald Family Room – COMING SOON!


Ronald McDonald House Charities of the Red River Valley has partnered with Essentia Health to create Fargo-Moorhead’s first Ronald McDonald Family Room. This space serves as a respite for families with babies receiving medical care at Esssentia Health Hospital located on 32nd Avenue in Fargo. We provide a relaxed space for families to grab a snack or a drink, take a shower, or take a quick break just steps from their critically-ill child, if only a for a few moments.


The Ronald McDonald Family Room will be located on the 4th floor of Essentia Health Hospital within the NICU including:

  • Family gathering area with recliners and a television
  • Dining area with a kitchenette, table, and chairs
  • Complimentary snack food and beverages
  • ADA accessible shower (toiletries and linens provided)


For more information, please contact Ashley at 701-232-3980 or 


We are in need of volunteers to help at the Ronald McDonald Family Room! We ask that Ronald McDonald Family Room volunteers commit to at least 3 months of service, some flexibility available. Fill out an application today.
