Johns Hopkins All Children's Hospital

Ronald McDonald House

The Ronald McDonald Houses provide temporary housing for families of patients being cared for at Johns Hopkins All Children’s Hospital.

Families are stronger when they are together. That’s why Johns Hopkins All Children’s Hospital partners with Ronald McDonald House Charities of Tampa Bay to provide the support and resources families need to stay close to their hospitalized child at little to no cost.

Johns Hopkins All Children’s offers families three Ronald McDonald Houses across campus. All locations offer private rooms, snacks, a television and laundry facilities. Some meals are provided. Hospital transport services are also available 24/7 for all locations. 

How to Request a Room

A room request may be made up to 30 days in advance of a hospital stay. All adults 18 years and older must have a background check before arrival and photo ID upon arrival.

To request a room at any of the houses, please call 727-767-7694. If calling from inside the hospital, please use extension 77694.
