Opening Doors Finding Hope

Ronald McDonald House Northwest OKC

Well more than 90% of the families currently served by RMHC-OKC have a child receiving treatment at Oklahoma Children’s Hospital. As more and more rural hospitals are reducing services or closing, and as area hospitals provide more specialized services, the demand for our services is growing/continues to grow. The recently expanded 40 bedroom Ronald McDonald House at Oklahoma Children’s Hospital does not have anywhere near enough rooms to meet the need for families seeking treatment at other Oklahoma City area hospitals.

And the drive to NE 13th Street in Oklahoma City can seem overwhelming to families who worry they will not be able to return to the hospital in time if their child’s condition changes. A recent study indicates that due to the lack of available rooms and distance from our existing Ronald McDonald House, we are significantly underserving those receiving treatment at our other partner hospitals – The Children’s Center, Integris and Mercy. The assessment reflects a current shortfall of 28 rooms and the forecasted need increases to nearly 40 rooms in the next 5-10 years.

In response to the unmet need and to help close the service gap validated in the study, a new Ronald McDonald House is planned for northwest Oklahoma City which will keep families with sick children at all of our partner hospitals even closer to each other and the medical care and resources they need, when they need it most.

Areas with naming opportunities are outlined below. To learn more about our capital campaign please contact Susan Adams, RMHC-OKC President and CEO at 405-424-6873 x104 or sadams@rmhc-okc.org.
