We help families with sick children.
Our Houses in Calgary and Red Deer provide a home away from home for families with children receiving medical care in hospital. Our Ronald McDonald Care Mobiles provide essential healthcare services and wellness programming to local families with children who need it most.
As an essential part of a family-centred care approach to healthcare, our Ronald McDonald Houses and Ronald McDonald Care Mobiles help minimize interruption to daily family life, alleviate the financial burden families with sick children face and lower anxiety for both parents and children.
We work closely with the medical community in our region to help us best serve families as well as expand our capacity to change children’s lives. Our Ronald McDonald Care Mobiles partner with Mosaic Primary Care Network in east Calgary and Siksika Health Services in Siksika Nation. Members of the medical community also serve on our Board of Directors, various organizational committees and as volunteers.
On a global scale, RMHC Chapters complement a family-centred care approach by providing families at 90 per cent of the top children’s hospitals in the world with access to Ronald McDonald Houses, Ronald McDonald Family Rooms and Ronald McDonald Care Mobiles.
