Ronald McDonald Family Room

Keeping families close

Ronald McDonald Family Room


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 


Help keep our Ronald McDonald Family Room stocked with these wishlist items! 


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.
