Providing a ‘home away from home’ for families with hospitalized children
With area hospitals expanding and offering more specialized services, the need for our programs has continued to grow. The leadership of Ronald McDonald House Charities® Oklahoma City felt it a critical need to meet and began fundraising efforts to expand its capacity to provide respite to more families.
The Ronald McDonald House® at The Children’s Hospital was dedicated on December 17, 2014 and served its first families on January 12, 2015. Located on the 3rd Floor of Garrison Tower, the House is connected by a skywalk to The Children’s Hospital and serves families of children being treated at the OU Medical Center campus.
The close proximity of this new House to their child’s hospital room allows parents to check on their child any time of the day or night, providing peace of mind and comfort to their child.
The $1.5M million, 10,000 square foot Ronald McDonald House increases our overnight capacity to 32 families. The House features 14 spacious bedrooms and living areas including an Oklahoma City Thunder playroom for children staying at the House.
