The Spokane Campus is located just minutes from Sacred Heart Children’s Hospital, Multicare, Shriners, St.Lukes, and other treatment facilities. When families are close to the hospital, they are able to spend more time with their child and have frequent interactions with their clinical care team which helps them better participate in the care decisions. Additionally, families staying with us have free laundry facilities, shuttle rides to and from the hospital, frequent meals prepared by volunteers through our Make-A-Meal program and much more.
Over 60% of the families who stay with us had no idea they would need our services just 24 hours prior to arriving with many families arriving via helicopter or ambulance. Approximately 57% of the families staying at the Spokane Campus have a premature infant or newborn with complications, 13% to receive specialized oncology treatment for their children, and 30% due to trauma or another illness.
Families are able to stay at the Ronald McDonald House free of charge thanks to the generosity of our community. The average length of stay at the Spokane Campus is 26 days.
Tour the Spokane Campus - North House
The Ronald McDonald House is much more than just a roof over families’ heads; it is a shelter in the storm. Our House was designed to have all of the comforts of a true home, and to encourage a community of empathy and support.
The Spokane Campus provides over 9,500 nights of lodging each year. In addition to a comfortable room, families have access to all the amenities of a home including laundry, high-speed wireless internet, a kitchen, and comfortable living spaces. Additionally, our volunteers provide transportation to and from the hospital.
Families are welcome to stay at the Ronald McDonald House at no charge, and regardless of their ability to pay.
Donors can help ensure that families continue to be able to stay at no cost by participating in our Share-A-Night program. We hope that you will consider becoming a sustaining donor, ensuring the continued support that our House depends on.
