Family Room at Duke Children’s Hospital

The Family Room at Duke is located on the 5th floor of Duke University Hospital, steps away from the pediatric and neo-natal intensive care units. The Family Room serves families with hospitalized children who live in the local area, as well as families who have traveled long distances and may be staying at the nearby Ronald McDonald House.
