RMHC Keeps Families Close

Did you know that 65% of Canadian families live outside a city with a children’s hospital? So when a child gets sick, they often have to travel hours to get treatment. Our 15 Ronald McDonald Houses across Canada give families a place to stay close to the hospital where their child is being treated. 17 Ronald McDonald Family Rooms located in hospitals across the country give families a place to rest and relax just steps from their child's bedside.

How we help

Ronald McDonald Houses provide families of sick children with a home to stay at while their child is being treated at a nearby hospital. Ronald McDonald Family Rooms also provide a comfortable place for families to rest and recharge, right inside hospitals. And through Ronald McDonald Care Mobiles, we help to bring basic medical care to vulnerable communities. So families can stay together and kids can heal better.

15 Ronald McDonald Houses

The 15 Ronald McDonald Houses provide out-of-town families with a warm, compassionate and comfortable place to stay near the hospital where their child is being treated; for little to no cost.

17 Ronald McDonald Family rooms

Ronald McDonald Family Rooms create a calm, nurturing space within the hospital walls, allowing parents to be steps away from their sick child's bedside. There are currently 16 Ronald McDonald Family Rooms.

1 Ronald McDonald Care Mobile

The Ronald McDonald Care Mobile is a mobile health unit that enables free and easily accessible medical care for children and their families right in their own community.
