Regina Taylor of Sedalia, Mo., had a few moments to herself Monday to eat in the Ronald McDonald House Family Room at Children’s Mercy Hospital in Kansas City. Taylor was at the hospital to support her grand-niece, a patient. The family room, which was celebrating its 20th anniversary, provides parents and family members a private area just steps away from their child’s room where they can sleep, shower or prepare a meal. The family room at Children’s Mercy Hospital was the first in the entire Ronald McDonald House system, and now there are more than 200 such rooms across the world.
