A new room will soon support child patients and their families at Our Lady of Lourdes Women's & Children's Hospital in Lafayette.

A groundbreaking ceremony was held Monday for the Ronald McDonald House Family Room located inside the hospital on Ambassador Caffery.

"Our vision is a world where all children have access to medical care, where their families are fully supported and actively involved in their children's care," said EJ Krampe with MacLaff. “Ronald McDonald Family Rooms are a welcoming, home-like space for families, just steps away from their children in the hospital.”

The room, according to the hospital, is expected to be completed by Fall 2022 and provide a place for families to rest, prepare meals, and have snacks.

"A new Family Room at Our Lady of Lourdes Women's & Children's Hospital is an excellent addition to the hospital's comprehensive, family-centered care," said Lourdes Foundation director Jeigh Stipe. "Lourdes Women & Children's is also close to the surrounding communities, making it a convenient location for patients from those regions."

Lourdes said the hospital's Family Room will offer the following amenities: A playground for children, private bathrooms with showers, dining area, internet access, three sleeping areas, kitchen, an area for napping, and laundry facility.

A groundbreaking ceremony was held at 2:00 pm on Monday, April 11, 2022.
