Expansion News

Ronald McDonald House at The Children's Hospital

We are excited to soon be providing 26 additional rooms, amenities and support so that even more families will be able to stay closest to their hospitalized child.

Ronald McDonald House Charities global has stewarded a new relationship with AbbVie, a global biopharmaceutical company.  AbbVie shares our vision of a world where all children have access to medical care, and where their families are supported and can be actively involved in every step of their health journey.  By donating the largest gift they have ever given to a nonprofit to help serve more RMHC families, AbbVie has donated $100 million.

RMHC-OKC is one of 32 chapters nationwide to be gifted a portion of this donation.  Because of the rising need in Oklahoma City, AbbVie has donated $2.4 million.

This donation does not complete our expansion costs of the Ronald McDonald House at Garrison Tower, but it does bring us closer to our goal to serve more families at The Children’s Hospital.  The third floor currently supports 14 families.  After the expansion is completed, RMHC-OKC will be able to serve 40 families while saving guest families over $1 million a year in food and lodging costs.

To learn more about how to help make our House a home with furnishings for the new rooms, please contact Susan Adams, RMHC-OKC President and CEO at 405-424-6873 x104 or sadams@rmhc-okc.org.
