    Ronald McDonald House

    The Ronald McDonald House of Providence provides a “home away from home” for families of children being treated at Hasbro Children’s Hospital, Rhode Island Hospital, Bradley Hospital and Women & Infants Hospital. Learn more about the Ronald McDonald House

    Pediatric Garden

    We know that hospitalized children are still children, and need fun, diversion and the occasional change of scenery. The entrance to our outdoor pediatric garden is located on the garden level, and is open during daylight hours, weather permitting, in the warmer months of the year. Check with your child’s nurse before leaving the floor, in case a test, therapy or meal is scheduled.

    Resource Center

    The Hasbro Family Resource Center, located in room 118, is a lending library for patients, families and anyone working with children. It is a satellite of the main medical library of Rhode Island Hospital and contains medical and consumer health books that have been specially selected with parents in mind. The subject matter reflects common pediatric diagnoses such as cancer, diabetes, asthma, epilepsy, autism, cystic fibrosis and special needs. There are also books on parenting and bereavement as well as an extensive collection of children’s literature. A computer and list of dependable, user-friendly health websites are available for your use, as well as databases containing current research information.

    Pharmacy

    A full service Lifespan Pharmacy is conveniently located in the Davol Building, near the Hasbro Children’s upper lobby. If you are interested in using our pharmacy for your child’s prescription needs, the GetWellNetwork has a button to press which will notify a pharmacy technician to visit your room. You can also tell your child’s nurse that you want your child’s prescriptions filled at the Lifespan Pharmacy. You can have your child’s medications delivered directly to your room, or have them delivered to you at home, using our free home delivery service. We also deliver refills.

    Family Lounges and Waiting Areas

    The Hasbro Children’s Hospital family rooms are located by the public elevators on the 5th and 6th floors. They offer comfortable seating, a kitchenette, television and locker storage for your convenience and are available to you at any time throughout your stay.

    Ronald McDonald Family Room

    Located on the 4th floor, just off the elevators, the Ronald McDonald room offers a comfortable place for family members to grab a quick snack, rest, or even do a load of laundry. The room is available to all adult family members of hospitalized children and opens at 9 a.m. each day (based on volunteer availability). For more information, please call 401-444-6085.
