Ronald McDonald Houses Charites of Kansas City

At Ronald McDonald House Charities of Kansas City (RMHC-KC) we keep families with sick children close to each other and the care and resources they need. At our three Houses adjacent to Children’s Mercy Hospital and our Ronald McDonald Family Rooms, we create places of respite where families can rally around and support one another.

Ronald McDonald Family Room transition

The Ronald McDonald Family Room inside Children’s Mercy is being transformed into a 10-bedroom Ronald McDonald House inside the hospital.

We know that our hiatus during construction will cause a temporary gap in services, particularly for ICU families. RMHC-KC will continue to support families with critically ill and injured children while the in-hospital space is being transformed, in the following ways:

  • Ronald McDonald staff will be regularly stocking easy-to-heat items in the refrigerator and freezers in both the PICU and ICN. We will also provide grab-and-go snacks in both waiting rooms.
  • We will hold overnight bedrooms at one of our three nearby Ronald McDonald Houses for families that have children in the ICUs who would not typically meet our mileage/distance requirement to stay in the Houses. Request to stay at Ronald McDonald House.
  • Any family with a child hospitalized at Children’s Mercy, or receiving outpatient care through Children’s Mercy, may visit the Wylie House (2525 Cherry Street) for a day visit, 8:00 a.m. to 8 p.m. Families are welcome to use our play spaces, get something to eat and do laundry. No reservation required.*
