Family Room Volunteer
Family Room at Banner Children’s-Diamond Children’s Medical Center|
The Ronald McDonald Family Room at Banner Children’s-Diamond Children’s Medical Center is an extension of the services Ronald McDonald House of Southern Arizona provides. The Family Room serves all pediatric in-patient families at the Banner Children’s-Diamond Children’s Medical Center. It is a special place within the hospital, near the intensive care units, where families can relax and “getaway” while still being close to their child. Family Room volunteers staff the room, uphold all Family Room and hospital policies and are supportive to those families who use the room. The Volunteer’s part is crucial to maintaining the friendly, caring atmosphere of the Family Room.|

Provide orientation and tours to first time guests

Instruct families of the Family Room policies
