Recently, transFORM was given the unique opportunity to work with the Ronald McDonald House of Long Island on the renovation of their facility. Ronald McDonald House serves families who have a sick child in local hospitals. The facility provides the family members hospitality and a comfortable place to stay while their loved one is receiving medical care.
Our talented Design Manager, Rozalia Kiss, worked on the design and installation of a new closet system for the Project Design renovation with Interior Designer Robin Baron. We are happy to have been able to donate the necessary materials as well as the time of our installers to make the vision set forth for the Ronald McDonald House become a reality. transFORM is grateful to Ronald McDonald House of Long Island and Robin Baron of Robin Baron Design for the opportunity to participate in Project Design 2014.
Located on the campus of the Cohen Children’s Medical Center of New York (formerly Schneider Children’s Hospital), the House accommodates families in a warm and supportive environment. Since opening in 1986, approximately 18,000 families from the United States and more than 80 countries around the world have been served. Many of the families are from Long Island and other parts of the Metropolitan area.
The mission of The Ronald McDonald House of Long Island is to give comfort and shelter to families experiencing the pain of having a sick child in local hospital facilities. A “home away from home”, the House provides the parents and siblings of these children with a temporary haven in a secure and comfortable environment among other families bearing a similar burden.
The Ronald McDonald House of Long Island has just completed Phase II of Project Design, a renovation initiative that will bring together more than 45 of America’s leading interior designers. Last summer, Phase I transformed 18 bedrooms and several common areas. Phase II will continue with the addition of 24 bedrooms, four kitchens, five common areas, laundry rooms and the creation of a brand new fitness center and meditation room.
