Every registered child at the Ronald McDonald House of Iowa City receives a free toy before they go home! Shopping in our” Toy Closet” is always a special moment for families as kids browse a huge collection of dolls, puzzles, trucks, and so much more.
RMHC-EIWI serves families at three locations:
A hot meal is served at all three locations every night of the week. Families always have a home-cooked meal ready for them after a long day at the hospital.
Through the Ronald McDonald House of Iowa City and our Family Rooms in Iowa City and Cedar Rapids, we help remove the barriers that separate families while they receive treatment for a critically ill or injured child.
We’re more than just a place to stay—our House and Family Rooms provide the essential comforts of home: warm beds, hot showers, home-cooked meals, kitchen and laundry facilities, a playground, recreation areas, and more.
Throughout the day families are constantly going back and forth from the Ronald McDonald House to the hospital or from our Family Room to their child’s hospital room. Providing fruits and vegetables for families make the perfect on-the-go breakfast or the key ingredient to a healthy lunch.
Parents of children receiving treatment at UnityPoint Health – St. Luke’s Hospital in Cedar Rapids or University of Iowa Stead Family Children’s Hospital have all the comforts of home while remaining just steps from their child’s bedside through the Ronald McDonald Family Room’s.
Illness doesn’t ask if you are ready. No parent expects to see their child in the hospital. When our families come to our House and Family Rooms, many don’t know how long their stay will last or when they can go back home.
