Our Relationship With The Medical Community
Helping to bridge access to healthcare
Because of the ever-changing environment we’re currently in, we are taking additional precautions to protect the health and welfare of the families we serve and to do our part to help slow the spread of COVID-19.
These actions are in alignment with recommendations received from the global offices of Ronald McDonald House Charities and on the advice of our hospital partners.
Those precautions include closing all Ronald McDonald Family Rooms and pausing all volunteer activity within both Ronald McDonald Houses, including our Share-A-Meal Program.
Additionally, we will suspend accepting new families into the Ronald McDonald House program beginning Saturday, March 21st, and continuing for at least 21 days. The 21-day suspension will be re-assessed periodically and further advisement will follow. Families currently staying at our Denver and Aurora Houses may remain as guests.
We rely on strong partnerships with the medical community to enable family-centered care.
In addition, medical professionals contribute to RMHC in a variety of different ways which enable us to expand our program capacity and help change children’s lives around the world:
- They are actively engaged as members of our board of directors.
- They provide land for Ronald McDonald Houses and/or spaces within hospitals for Ronald McDonald Family Rooms.
- They assist with operating costs and donations of in-kind services.
- They volunteer their time and services at RMHC
