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.
