Eisenberg Cutt Kendell & Olson recently made a generous donation to the Intermountain Area Ronald McDonald House Charities (RMHC) to sponsor the 2nd floor Family Room at Primary Children’s Hospital in Salt Lake City. The Family Room provides a temporary home-away-from-home for children and families throughout the region who are being treated in Primary Children’s Hospital ICU.
This week, ECKO managing partner, Jordan Kendell, had an opportunity to visit the Family Rooms at PCH and learn more about the thousands of families that utilize RMCH services. He said, “It is impossible to overstate the importance of Ronald McDonald House Charities’ work in our community. These families are in desperate need of the wrap-around services and resources that RMHC provides. We are fortunate to be in a position to support their work, and support the families they serve.”
With our sponsorship, Primary Children’s Hospital will continue to maintain, update, and expand its Ronald McDonald Family Rooms, which provide a comforting, home-like environment and conveniences at no cost to parents and families – many of whom travel to the hospital from all areas of Utah, as well as Idaho, Nevada, Montana, and Wyoming.
- PCH’s first Family Room, built in 2013, is the largest in the world. Spanning more than 3,500 square feet of the main hospital’s third floor, the Family Room is available free of charge to families with children being treated by PCH. Its amenities include: fully stocked kitchen and dining facility, private showers, private meeting spaces, laundry rooms, and four overnight retreat rooms offer needed conveniences to thousands of families each year.
- Thanks to its partnership with Ronald McDonald House Charities and others who selflessly support and donate, Primacy Children’s Hospital recently opened its second Ronald McDonald Family Room in 2017. Open 24/7, the facility provides a private and comfortably appointed space for parents with seriously ill or injured children receiving care at PCH’s Pediatric ICU, Cardiac ICU, and Neuro Trauma Unit. All amenities are provided free of charge just steps away from a child’s patient room.
