Keeping families near to each other and the care they need, when they need it most.

The Ronald McDonald House Charities of Eastern Iowa and Western Illinois helps families with sick children stay close to each other and the care and resources they need, when they need it most.

Keeping families together and safe during this pandemic.

Our staff is working hard to keep our guests and staff safe with many new precautions in place. Among some of the precautions are:

  • Guests and staff are screened daily, including temperature
  • Masks are required at all times when not in private guest rooms (Masks and hand sanitizer are provided to each family)
  • Social distancing is enforced with common gathering areas closed (Great room, recreation rooms, playroom)
  • Laundry and Kitchen services are available to one family at a time and meals and snacks are individually portioned
  • New guests are admitted every two weeks with a contact-free check-in process and no visitors permitted
  • Extra cleaning and disinfection protocols in place

 

We continue to work with the Johnson County Department of Public Health, our hospital partners, and our RMHC Global community to ensure we are practicing the most up to date and effective precautions possible. We appreciate the community support we receive through financial and in-kind donations including catered meals, wish list items, and thoughtful encouragement for our guests.
