The Ronald McDonald House (RMH) Family Room at Kapiolani Medical Center for Women and Children (KMCWC) marked its 10th anniversary on January 11 with an Open House and a short program to acknowledge the enduring partnership between Ronald McDonald House Charities of Hawaii (RMHC-HI) and KMCWC.
Since opening in 2003, the RMH Family Room at KMCWC has provided respite and assistance for nearly 9,000 people annually. When serious illness or injury strikes a child and he or she is hospitalized, a family’s entire world turns upside down. Often, parents are only able to leave their child’s bedside for brief periods of time, if at all. The RMH Family Room is there to support families during these very critical times, to help family units and supportive relationships endure.
