The Philadelphia Ronald McDonald House (PRMH) supports families of seriously ill children by creating a community of comfort and hope. Our programs include two Ronald McDonald Houses, two Ronald McDonald Family Rooms at The Children’s Hospital of Philadelphia, a Hospitality Kiosk at St. Christopher’s Hospital for Children, and Ronald McDonald Camp.
Our Ronald McDonald Houses, together serving up to 65 families each night, are built on the foundation of providing holistic support to families —including comfortable rooms, daily home-cooked meals, complimentary vans to the hospital, social worker assistance, and the support of other families who understand—enabling families to stay together and remain focused on the health and well-being of their seriously ill child. Our two Ronald McDonald Family Rooms extend the support of our Houses into the hospital, offering a quiet respite space away from the bedside to families with children receiving treatment in the Oncology and Cardiology units at The Children’s Hospital of Philadelphia. Our Hospitality Kiosk expands our reach even further by providing complimentary snacks, beverages, and other amenities to families with children in the critical care units of St. Christopher’s Hospital for Children. Finally, our one-week overnight Ronald McDonald Camp— located in the Poconos— provides the opportunity for children with cancer and their siblings to experience the joys of summer camp each August.
