It is with great pride we announce the commitment to establish a Ronald McDonald Family Room concept to be located at Ventura County Medical Center (VCMC). This will be the 3rd Family Room developed in the State of California and the first Family Room concept in a public hospital in the nation. Recognizing that VCMC is the only licensed pediatric care facility in West Ventura County, the nations #1 Family Medicine Residency Program, the exclusive west county’s trauma center, the only clinic in Ventura County treating children with cancer and blood diseases, it was therefore appropriate Ronald McDonald House Charities of Southern California and Ronald McDonald Global unanimously voted to choose VCMC as their next Family Room in California.
With the opening of North Tower, existing hospital space is now available for repurposing and within that space VCMC has identified an appropriate area for the Ronald McDonald Family Room. Ventura County has always had a commitment of caring for the whole person; physical, emotional and psychological.
Currently, we are raising money for the construction and establishment of the Ronald McDonald Family Room. The goal is to raise $1 Million. We are approximately half way there. Join us today in helping the children and families of Ventura County who are fighting life threatening illnesses and diseases.
