There's Someplace Like Home

When families have to travel to Tucson for medical care for a child, having a place to stay should be the last thing they have to worry about. And because of the Ronald McDonald House®, it is. Last year more than 550 families called this House their home.


Ronald McDonald Family Room®

There’s nothing quite as stressful as having a baby or child in the hospital. The Ronald McDonald Family Room at Banner Children’s Diamond Children’s Medical Center, staffed by friendly volunteers, gives parents a place to rest and regroup. Away from the child’s bedside but close enough for comfort.

Rolling Care out to Kids

More children in Cochise County will have access to dental care thanks to the new Ronald McDonald Care Mobile®. A wonderful partnership with Chiricahua Community Health Centers to help us meet our mission of “improving the health and well-being of children and their families.”


Keeping Families Close®

When Baby Erick was born to Raquel and Erick, he was so loved but so early. Born at 25 weeks gestation, weighing 1 pound, 10 ounces. Raquel stayed at the Ronald McDonald House for 76 nights, caring for her baby in the NICU, while her husband stayed in Sierra Vista, working and caring for their two daughters. “We could not have gotten through the three months without the Ronald McDonald House.”

We understand the value of a home-cooked meal, a chance to do a load of laundry, a safe and friendly place for your kids to just "be kids." We help you give 100% of your time and energy to your child because, most of all, we understand the value of time together as a family, when time is at its most precious.

If you must travel more than 30 miles to receive medical care for a sick or injured child, you can stay with us, at no cost, for as long as your child is receiving treatment.

Rotating Shifts

Families who stay at the Ronald McDonald House operate on every conceivable schedule – and even some inconceivable ones. Take, for instance, Esme & Alejandro, parents of baby Ana Sofia.

How did they manage to never leave her side during her first three weeks of life in the hospital?
