Mercy Hospital Fort Smith is home to Arkansas’ only Ronald McDonald Family Room. The Family Room is located just one floor above the NICU, so parents and babies can remain close. The 2,500 square foot space includes a living room, kitchen, reading room and bathrooms with showers. Four separate sleeping rooms are available for naps and overnight guests. Daytime visitors may access the television, Internet and laundry facilities, as well as meals and snacks in the kitchen.
The room is staffed by a full-time program manager and six part-time program associates. Volunteers also help meet the needs of families using the room. Please call the hospital regarding volunteer opportunities.
The Family Room is open 365 days a year. Daytime guests are welcome from 9 a.m. to 9 p.m. Overnight guests may check in from 5 p.m. to 8 a.m.
