The Ronald McDonald House of Galveston provides a caring environment where parents can share their worries and concerns with families in similar situations. Their emotional support is a crucial factor to the well-being of the pediatric patient. Because the House provides an alternative to expensive, isolated hotel rooms, these families can remain together.
Our House has 20 fully furnished and air-conditioned private bedrooms. A Victorian style home that was built 28 years ago, this structure fits well into the East End Historical District. The House is located within five blocks of the medical center. It features a huge, fully equipped modern kitchen and two dining rooms, as well as 2 elevators that are handicapped accessible and free laundry facilities. The bi-lingual staff is on duty 24 hours a day 7 days a week.
The Ronald McDonald House of Galveston serves families from the University of Texas Medical Branch, the only multi-category state referral hospital in Texas, and the Shriner’s Hospital for Children and Transitional Learning Community. These hospitals have large Neo-Natal Intensive Care Units and we provide lodging for the families of these tiny miracles.
