Our Family Rooms were created in response to RMHSNJ’s commitment to enhance our services to families of seriously ill and injured children throughout the nine southern counties of New Jersey.
For 36 years, RMHSNJ has been a “home away from home” for families whose children require life-saving treatments for critical illnesses and traumatic injuries. Now, we’re providing the same thing for more than 13,000 families annually whose children are receiving treatment at 9 area hospitals.
Our Family Rooms are a comfortable place for parents, siblings, and extended family members to take a moment for themselves to rest, refresh, and recuperate while still staying close to their hospitalized child.
Our goal is to create an uplifting living, dining, and kitchen space that offers comfort and support for local families with children in a pediatric unit, PICU, NICU, or emergency department.
