Ronald McDonald Family Room to be Built at St. Mary's (St. Mary's Hospital)

On Wednesday, April 6th, St. Mary's Hospital and Ronald McDonald House Charities announced that St. Mary's Hospital in Madison will soon be the home to Wisconsin's first Family Room in Wisconsin. Construction on the Ronald McDonald Family Room is likely to begin in 2012 and expected to take 5 months to complete. The total cost of the project is $1 million and will be funded with support from the community. To make a gift, call St. Mary’s Foundation at 608-258-5600 or Ronald McDonald House Charities at 608-232-4660.
