How to Request a Room

Stays at the Columbus Ronald McDonald House are by referrals from hospital staff only. The House staff will then contact you as soon as a room is available. Rooms are provided on a first-come-first-serve basis to families with hospitalized children under the age of 18, but priority is given to families of patients in critical care units.
