Project Description

The Ronald McDonald Family Room at Cardinal Glennon is the third such “home-away-from-home” environment ISC has constructed for the Ronald McDonald House Charities in the St. Louis area.

The 1,850-square-foot center is located on the hospital’s fifth floor above a sleep center and adjacent to a head injury rehab wing. Minimizing noise and inconvenience to ongoing operations during the three-month construction process required careful coordination and constant communication among the entire project team. The family area includes sleeping rooms, baths with showers, a laundry room, a fully equipped kitchen, a library and a family room.
