To Stay at the House

Before a family can check-in at the Ronald McDonald House, a referral must be given by the patient’s doctor, nurse, or social worker.  They may call the House directly at (850) 222-1706.  Occupancy is on a first come, first served basis.  No advance reservations are accepted, although a room will be held until 6:00pm on the day it is requested.  If there are no rooms available, the family’s name will be placed on the waiting list.

Guests are requested to register between 9:00 a.m. and 6:00 p.m.  Please speak to the House Manager if special arrangements need to be made.

Families are asked to do a small daily chore to help maintain our facility.  This is designed to take up only a short amount of time, and is not expected to take priority over your child’s needs.  Some examples of the types of chores that our guests do are sweeping, taking out the trash, wiping down the counters, and other household chores.

Transportation is provided to and from Tallahassee Memorial Hospital by the hospital’s security office.  Transportation may be provided by other medical facilities as well.  Address the facility your family member is at to get further transportation information.
