Since opening our doors at Ronald McDonald House Central Alberta in 2012, our 11 private family suites have played host to 1,190 out-of-town families with children receiving medical treatment in hospital.
In 2015 alone, 385 families stayed at the House.
Since 2012, 2,158 Day Use Program passes have been used by families with sick children looking for a place to rest, eat a warm meal and recharge for a few hours away from the hospital.
In 2015, 493 Day Use passes were used by families – that’s more than one a day.
We know the costs associated with being away from home caring for a sick child can quickly add up. That’s why families pay only $12 of the $163/night it costs to operate each room or can access our Day Use Program completely free of charge.
Thanks to our generous donors and funders who make it all possible.
