Hospital Outreach Programs

C.H.E.E.R. Rooms

The Ronald McDonald® C.H.E.E.R! (Children’s Health Education Enrichment Resource) Rooms provide a fun, colorful, welcoming environment and an educational place for children to wait while their mothers receive prenatal care at UTMB Regional Maternal and Child Health Program clinics. The non-clinical staff keeps children occupied with age appropriate activities in health and wellness. Meanwhile, their mothers can turn their attention to the healthcare providers giving them critical information about their own health and the health of their unborn baby.

Hospitality Carts

Our Ronald McDonald Hospitality a la Carte program provides bedside amenities to parents and other caregivers on the Neonatal and Postpartum units at these locations:

Memorial Hermann Northeast, Houston, TX

Baptist Hospital of the South, Beaumont, TX

Hospitality Cart Volunteers make rounds to provide items of care and comfort to the parents and siblings of hospitalized infants. The cart is filled with complimentary snacks, toiletries and reading material, as well as toys and crafts.

Give the gift of togetherness.

We believe families are stronger when they battle a medical crisis together. With your help we can keep family members close to each other, and steps from their child’s medical treatment.
