Ronald McDonald House Charities of Southwest Virginia
Ronald McDonald House of Southwest Virginia (RMHC SWVA) provides a comfortable and supportive ‘home-away-from-home’ for the families of critically ill children who must leave their communities and come to the Roanoke Area for medical treatment. Serving over 700 families a year, our 18 room facility is located just 2.5 blocks from Carilion Roanoke Memorial Hospital. Our goal is to keep families together by relieving the burden of a place to stay and something to eat so they can concentrate on what’s most important, their child.
The Ronald McDonald Family Room© is located on the 14th floor of Carilion Roanoke Memorial Hospital. The Family Room serves as a respite area for adult family members and guests of hospitalized children in a home-like setting where families can relax without leaving the hospital.
