YOUR SUPPORT HELPS FAMILIES STAY CLOSE WHILE THEIR CHILD IS TREATED IN A LOCAL HOSPITAL
Ronald McDonald House
The first Ronald McDonald House of the Central Valley opened on Millbrook Ave. in 1984. We were the fourth Ronald McDonald House to open their doors in California. Our first Ronald McDonald House was a 7 room facility. The facility was started with a great deal of excitement and support from the local community and partnership with Valley Children’s Hospital. As the surrounding area grew, so did the need for the hospital to expand. When they moved to a new location about 20 minutes away, we followed.
On February 14, 2001, we expanded to an 18 bedroom Ronald McDonald House located adjacent to Valley Children’s Hospital in Madera, CA. The new Ronald McDonald House is comprised of three wings with 18 private guestrooms. Each room features 2 queen size beds, private bathroom, and satellite TV. Each wing is equipped with it's own laundry room, kitchen, and dining area for guests to share. The kitchens are fully equipped with a stocked pantry and private refrigerators for each guest room. We also have playroom for siblings, a large communal living area, outdoor dining areas, play areas, and some spaces for quiet moments.
