Ronald McDonald House Westmead



Ronald McDonald House Westmead is committed to keeping families close by providing a warm and welcoming home away from home for seriously ill children and their families travelling to Westmead for treatment.

Ronald McDonald House Westmead is located at 1 Labyrinth Way, Westmead, NSW.

Ronald McDonald House Westmead (RMHW) was established in 1986 and has since provided a ‘home away from home’ for almost 12,000 families with seriously ill children receiving treatment at The Children’s Hospital at Westmead.

At Ronald McDonald House Westmead, we strive to provide a safe, comfortable, warm and welcoming environment where the whole family can stay together for the duration of their child’s treatment. It is a place for families to be together during what can be a very difficult and stressful time.  

The House has grown from 18 rooms and 5 units in 2017, to a new, purpose built 60-room House in 2018 to cater for families both large and small.

Although the main service we offer at the House is accommodation, we also provide the facilities of home and added comforts, so families can travel light with peace of mind that their needs can be met while staying at the house, no matter how short or long their stay.

From free onsite parking and laundry facilities, home-cooked meals lovingly prepared by local community and corporate groups, to 24 hour reception and a range of recreational activities and visits from local groups catering for children of all ages, and children at heart.

See Our Facilities for more information on the facilities available to families staying at the House. 

Our caring team of volunteers and staff strive to lighten the families’ load and to ensure that they are offered the help and support they need, around the clock, so they are able to focus on what really matters – their family.
