Ronald McDonald House Charities Opens a 2nd Family Room in the Twin Cities

Ronald McDonald House Charities and the College Station Medical Center celebrated the opening of their new Family Room on Friday with a ribbon cutting ceremony and facility tour.

Carolyn Schwarz, CEO at Ronald McDonald House Charities of Central Texas, thanked The Med, community members, and donors.

“This is the sixth Ronald McDonald Family Room for our chapter, it’s the second one in the Brazos Valley, it’s the most beautiful one if I do say so,” said Schwarz.

The 1,000 square foot space features a living room, kitchen/dining, two bedrooms, two full baths and laundry facilities.

Families also have access to computers, the Internet, children’s play area and an outside garden patio.

America Farrell, CEO at The Med, said she was skeptical at first, but soon realized how special the Family Room would be for the hospital.

“Ours is going to be able to take care of kids up to 21 years-old, so if there’s a family that sent their child off to A&M and the child gets sick, they can stay with them,” said Farrell.

The second Family Room in the twin cities is at CHI St. Joseph in Bryan.
