Ronald Mcdonald house in Dunedin Hospital

Help me to encourage the SDHB to change their stance about not including a Ronald Mcdonald house in the new Dunedin Hospital. 
I have a daughter with major heart conditions and a step daughter also with major medical issues. On many a time we have had the need to use the Ronald McDonald houses both in Christchurch and Auckland.

Without these facilities these hospital stays would have been so much harder. The houses are clean, safe and family friendly. The staff understand what families that are staying in them are going through and as such show great empathy. Often amazing, healthy and nutritious meals were provided by local businesses or schools. Never once in our stays was the brand of McDonald's forced onto us or for that matter even mentioned.

The services and facilities that one of these houses wold provide to families in need well out weighs the negative image of fast food.

I would encourage you to get in behind this venture and to encourage the SDHB  to reconsider this stance and to get in behind an amazing opportunity for our city.
