Throughout the past thirty years, the mission of Ronald McDonald House Charities (RMHC) of South Florida has been to create, find and support programs that directly improve the health and well-being of children and their families. We have done that through the operation of the Ronald McDonald House by providing a home-away-from-home for families with critically ill or injured children undergoing treatment at South Florida area pediatric hospitals.
Each year with the generous support of various partnerships Ronald McDonald Houses serves over 500 children and families of seriously ill or injured children who are receiving care in the South Florida area hospital. No other organization duplicates this service.
Staying at the Ronald McDonald House has many positive impacts on the child, the family, and the medical providers. The House provides children and their families’ simple access to each other any time of the day or night which helps keep families together and enhance their coping skills during their child’s hospitalization. Having families close by ensures that the child has access to top care and facilitates the transition to normal activities with the resources, support and encouragement they need, and reduces the level of stress in the child and parents. Medical providers and hospitals report that their partnership with the Ronald McDonald House strengthens the culture of family-centered care, improves patient satisfaction, improves adherence to treatment, and increases outpatient treatment options.
