One. Our Partnership with St. David’s Medical Center.

by Paula Duke

One.  It’s not a very big number.  But it’s a serious number.  It means a single unit, but in this case represents 365 days, or one year, and our anniversary with St. David’s Medical Center.

One year ago today, we opened the Ronald McDonald Family Room at St. David’s Medical Center. What a fantastic year it has been!   We’ve been very busy, and successful in doing just what we set out to do, helping NICU families stay together.

Also, if you remember, that’s when I first introduced you to the giant scissors. 🙂

The Family Room at St. David’s Medical Center has a very comfortable space, with a living room area, kitchen, two restrooms with showers, and four sleeping rooms.

12 months later, we’ve served approximately 245 families and we’ve got a great thing going. And why shouldn’t we? St. David’s Medical Center takes great care of us.  Everyone is so happy to have us and they treat us like family.  Everyone from Volunteer Services, to the Food Services team, the fabulous Housekeeping team, and the always dependable Security team.   And then there’s the incredible NICU staff – nurses, case managers, social workers, charge nurses, and of course, Rhonda.  We couldn’t have done it without any of them. It’s been a fantastic partnership.
