Ronald McDonald House Charities North Australia and Mackay Hospital Foundation announced a joint fundraising campaign to raise $650,000 for a new facility to be constructed at Mackay Base Hospital to support seriously ill and injured children and their families - a Ronald McDonald Family Room.

Ronald McDonald Family Rooms are located inside major hospitals and are exclusively for the families of children undergoing treatment in a nearby ward. Run by friendly volunteers, Family Rooms are welcoming spaces where families can take time out from the clinical environment of the wards, have a tea or coffee, freshen up with a shower or find a quiet space for a much-needed nap. Family Rooms also have dedicated play areas so the siblings of seriously ill children can have a bit of fun.

Please help raise vital funds to help local sick children and their families.

We strive to partner our community for superior health care in our facilities by investing in:


  • Innovative health services
  • Modern, state-of-the-art equipment
  • Medical and health technology
  • Support services for patients and staff
  • Staff education, training and research
  • Improving health outcomes for communities
  • Valuable community based volunteer programs


Government funding provides essential health services but it cannot pay for everything. Our role is to fill the gap – to provide those extras that will help:

  • patients to receive the finest health care possible
  • staff to have the best working environment in order to provide first class patient care

And the little things that make a stay in hospital more comfortable for the patients and their visitors.
