Ronald McDonald House, Parkville, is dedicated to providing a ‘home away from home’ for families with a seriously ill child undergoing specialist paediatric medical care at the Royal Children’s Hospital, Melbourne. Our Parkville House was established in 1986 and is one of the largest of the 14 Ronald McDonald Houses operating in Australia. As at the end of June 2016, since opening its doors, the House has provided a ‘home away from home’ for 655,603 nightly guests. Our families come from all areas of regional Victoria, interstate and occasionally overseas. Some families stay with us for just a night, others can be with us for much longer.
It is a place for families to be together, with all the comforts of home during a difficult and stressful time. The main service we offer at the House is accommodation, but families can also enjoy recreational activities, family dinner nights, access to the Ronald McDonald Learning Program, respite through the Ronald McDonald Family Retreats and Ronald McDonald Family Rooms at Wodonga and the Northern Hospital. A Family Room program is also being developed with Western Health, Sunshine Campus.
Located close to the Royal Children’s Hospital Melbourne, the House is situated at 22 Gatehouse Street, Parkville. Its close vicinity to the Hospital means families can have a break from the hospital during the day, yet are only across the road if they are required back on the Hospital ward.
