Many families travel far from home to get the best treatment for their seriously ill or injured children. For children facing a serious medical crisis, nothing seems scarier than not having their moms and dads close by for love and support. The Ronald McDonald House is a “home-away-from-home” for these families with hospitalized children, keeping parents just minutes away from their children’s bed-sides.
Located across the street from Dayton Children’s Hospital and just minutes away from Miami Valley Hospital, our House provides families with many of the comforts of home, such as hot meals, on site laundry facilities and private guest rooms at little or no cost to them. The House has a nominal suggested room fee, but no family is ever turned away due to inability to pay.
To utilize overnight services at the House
- Families must complete a referral form signed by a medical professional involved in their child’s treatment. Click a link below to download the hospital specific form or request a form from your hospital.
- All individuals over 18 years of age requesting services must:
- Referrals can be submitted to the House through fax or e-mail
- 937-496-2476 or Info@RMHCdayton.org
Once the referral is received, a Guest Service Manager will contact the family regarding their eligibility and the availability of a room. When determining availability, the House considers several factors, including the criticality of the child’s condition and the distance their family must travel to and from the hospital.
