Stay at the House
The Ronald McDonald House of Iowa City provides support and comfortable accommodations for families so they can stay close to their child receiving medical treatment.
To be eligible to stay, families must live at least 20 miles away and have a child age 21 or younger in medical care. Once a guest, families may stay until their child is discharged from the hospital. Because of this, we cannot guarantee room reservations in advance as families do not always know when they will be leaving. In lieu of room reservations, families are placed on the Request to Stay list and given a room based on daily availability.
How to Stay
Requesting a room at the Ronald McDonald House is easy. Simply follow the steps below:
