Ronald McDonald Family Room® “Field Trip” Program

January 13th, 2023

Families from all over the world seek evidence-based treatment at Rogers Behavioral Health and for over a decade, many of these families have called our Ronald McDonald House® “home.”

In August 2021, we proudly opened our first Ronald McDonald Family Room located on the Rogers Behavioral Health campus in Oconomowoc. Our Family Room is the second in the world to exclusively partner with a mental and behavioral health hospital.

To ensure the best outcomes, Rogers offers patients multiple options for treatment, including inpatient care, residential care, partial hospitalization and intensive outpatient care. As patients progress through treatment, they are given the opportunity to spend time with their loved ones, including off-campus visits to the Family Room!

There’s plenty of fun to be had in the Family Room, which is why we are so excited to introduce our new “Field Trip” program, that will allow Rogers’ treatment teams to bring small groups of patients into the our space for a fun outing including…

RMFR games and toys

It means a lot for patients to spend time with their loved ones with off-campus visits to the Family Room.

“My daughter wasn’t ready to be out in town at the time of our visit. There would have been too many anxiety triggers. The Family Room gave us a relaxing place to visit with plenty of activities to do together. It was so helpful to have this place to go to. I’m so grateful we had this available. My daughter and I baked and decorated cupcakes together, painted rocks in the craft room and played board games. These are special memories I’m going to have during her time at Rogers. These are small things that made a big difference for us.”

“We visited several times while my daughter was in treatment. It was amazing! We baked a number of treats together as a family and enjoyed the Creativity Room. Thank you sincerely for this amenity. It was a bright spot during a tough time for our family.”

Since we opened our doors, we have welcomed over 600 families into the Family Room! We are proud of our partnership with Rogers, and look forward to welcoming even more patients with this unique program.
