Ronald McDonald House New York | About Us

RMH-NY is proud to provide a strong, compassionate circle of support that keeps families close when they need each other most.

Ronald McDonald House New York continues to grow at the intersection of healthcare and hospitality. A child's health journey is an emotional one, which is why we work to relieve stress on our families in many ways as their child undergoes medical treatment.

Our Family Rooms at NYC Health + Hospitals at Kings County and Elmhurst serve as the model for our growth. Located near the pediatric wings in both hospitals, The Ronald McDonald Family Rooms allow caregivers of children in treatment to prioritize what matters most: their child's health and well-being.

But our mission of health equity doesn’t end there. We provide resources and community even after a family's stay at the House is over. With your help we can be there for everyone in the family at every stage of their story, from lasting chronic illnesses to ongoing child development.

Our Mission

Ronald McDonald House New York provides families of children with cancer and other serious illnesses a strong, caring and seamless circle of support. During some of the darkest days for each of our families, we’re devoted to easing the burden. With the use of our modern facilities, varied services and customized programming, we address family's underlying social factors of health so they can focus on what matters most: their child's health.

Ronald McDonald House Charities (RMHC)
RMHC is global network of local Chapters that has been helping millions of families with sick children find comfort and support when they need it most. Since 1974, RMHC has created programs that strengthen families during difficult times. RMHC provides vital resources and compassionate care to children and their families being served by leading hospitals worldwide.

Our Relationship with McDonald’s

Since the founding of the first Ronald McDonald House in Philadelphia, McDonald’s has helped support families of children with serious pediatric illnesses by providing stability and vital resources. Their support extends from monetary contributions and volunteerism to cause-related marketing promotions and the space to place Donation Boxes that raise money for Chapters around the world.  McDonald’s continues to provide valuable resources to help Ronald McDonald Houses expand our core programs and services.

Our Relationship with Partnering Hospitals
Ronald McDonald House New York partners with eight neighboring hospital systems in New York City. Each of these medical centers play an integral role in connecting families to the services offered by RMH-NY. To reserve a room at Ronald McDonald House New York, families must secure a referral from their assigned social worker at the hospital their child is actively receiving treatment at. Additionally, we partner with neighboring hospitals to offer services outside of the House such as the NYC Health + Hospital/Kings County Family Room, Hospitality Carts at both HSS and NYP Weil Cornell and our Hospital Outreach Programs.
