Ronald McDonald Family Room to Open at Behavioral Health Pavilion
Families need quality time in a place that feels like home when they have a child getting medical treatment. The Ronald McDonald Family Room® in the Nationwide Children’s Hospital Big Lots Behavioral Health Pavilion will be a place where families can gather to de-stress. This space will serve as a welcoming environment where families can feel at home and a place where families can be close to their children as they receive treatment and support at the pavilion. This Ronald McDonald Family Room® will be the first in a stand-alone behavioral health facility specifically for children and adolescence which gives hope for the future of families with children working through mental health difficulties. Dee Anders, Executive Director of Ronald McDonald House Charities of Central Ohio, and Vicki Chappelear, Program Manager, talk about the importance of this new family room in a video produced by the video team of the spring Immersion Class at Capital University’s Convergent Media Center. Special thanks to the students, staff, and advisors from the PR & communications company, Fahlgren-Mortine.
