In an effort to make your stay at the hospital a little easier, we have partnered with the Ronald McDonald House Charities of the Intermountain Area to build two Ronald McDonald Family Rooms in the hospital. Families needing a place for an extended stay, can visit the local Ronald McDonald House, located less than 2 miles from the hospital. 


Family Room Level 3

The Ronald McDonald Family Room on level 3 of the main hospital is open to families of current patients free of charge. The Family Room is open every day from 9 a.m. - 9 p.m.

The Family Room provides a home-like environment for families of children being treated at Primary Children’s, and includes:

  • State of the art, fully stocked kitchen and dining facility 
  • Relaxing living room
  • Private showers
  • Quiet meeting space
  • Laundry facilities
  • Four computers equipped with printers and fax capabilities 
  • Retreat rooms for naps and overnight stays 
  • All amenities provided free of charge

Family Room Level 2

The Ronald McDonald Family Room on level 2 is reserved for parents of patients who are critically ill or injured and being treated in the Pediatric ICU, Cardiac ICU, or Neuro Trauma Unit. This Family Room is open 24/7 with guest card access and includes: 

  • Quiet respite area 
  • Restroom
  • Kitchenette with snacks and beverages
  • Private shower
  • Laundry facilities
  • Retreat rooms for naps and overnight stays
  • All amenities provided free of charge

While this Family Room is just for parents, waiting rooms as well as the Family Room on level 3 are available for families, children and guests to visit together. 

Retreat Rooms 

Both Family Rooms are equipped with four retreat rooms available for naps and overnight stays. Naps are available during limited times of the day and do not require a referral. Overnight stays must be referred and scheduled by the unit social worker. Please ask your nurse or social worker if you are interested in an overnight stay.
