New Ronald McDonald House allows families to be steps away from their children
When the new C.S. Mott Children’s Hospital opens this November, families with critically ill children will be able to find a place to rest at the new Ronald McDonald House within C.S. Mott. The new facility is one of only five such Ronald McDonald Houses within a children’s hospital in the world. It will be located on the 10th floor of the hospital, just steps away from the hospital’s intensive care units.
While the current Ronald McDonald House of Ann Arbor that is currently just around the corner from the hospital will continue to serve more than 600 families annually, these new accommodations will provide a short-term stay option for families of our most critically ill children, many of whom were not expecting to have their child admitted and need a place to stay while they make plans and work with the medical team to learn about their child’s condition and treatment plan. The new Ronald McDonald House within the hospital will have 12 private bedrooms with private bathrooms and a shared common space, all designed to feel as much like home as possible.
