Ronald Mcdonald family room at caroline’s corner

Ronald McDonald Family Room at Caroline’s Corner provides families of children receiving medical treatment at Novant Health Hemby Children’s Hospital with the comforts of home while remaining just steps from their child’s bedside. The program provides a space where families can rest, reflect, and recharge at any point during their child’s treatment. RMHC of GC partnered with Novant Health and the Comly family to open this program in May 2021. This partnership is extremely meaningful to all three parties, especially the Comly family who sadly lost their infant daughter, Caroline, in 2018.  The Comlys wished to see Caroline’s memory live on  and wanted to create a space for families going through similar journeys with their children. Read more
