The Ronald McDonald House at Gateway provides a calm, serene atmosphere for families to step away from the hectic, stressful environment of the hospital. The “home away from home” offers comfort, warm meals and relief from traveling far to care for their critically ill children.
This Ronald McDonald House includes 16 comfortable bedrooms with all of the necessary amenities to relax and unwind. In addition to the bedrooms, a large kitchen and dining area provides space where multiple families can be cooking and preparing meals. There is also plenty of room for children to enjoy including a family room equipped with lots of entertainment options. A sensory room is also incorporated which provides a low-stress, enjoyable environment for children to work through their emotions and enhance coping skills.
The new Ronald McDonald House is making a big difference in the healing process for children by helping to keep families close by. It is crucial to provide the families with the support needed so they can focus on the health and well-being of their child.
