ALBANY, N.Y.—A new family suite kitchen was unveiled by the Albany Medical Center and Hannaford Supermarkets on Wednesday.
The kitchen is now at the Ronald McDonald House Charities Family Suite at the Children's Hospital at Albany med.
The kitchen was made possible by a $200,000 gift commitment from the Hannaford Charitable Foundation.
"When parents have a newborn in intensive care, they want to stay as close to their child as possible. The family kitchen, supported by Hannaford, helps provide a nearby, comfortable place for families to gather, which makes their stay a little bit easier," said Michael Horgan, M.D., division head of neonatology at the Children's Hospital at Albany Med.
In addition to the family kitchen, the family suite also includes a lounge, laundry facilities and three family transition rooms for overnight stays.
