Relocation and expansion of Ronald McDonald House in Oxford
- 3rd RMHC project
- 62 bedroom facility
- Communal living; kitchens, lounges, playrooms and laundry rooms
Like all specialist children’s hospitals, Oxford Children’s Hospital provides services across a wide region. Children and their families travel from all over the UK, including Northern Ireland, to receive vital care.
We are working in partnership with Oxford University Hospitals to develop a new Ronald McDonald House within the grounds of the John Radcliffe Hospital and to extend our services to include a New-born Intensive Care facility.
Our team of healthcare specialists will build a 62-bedroom facility for families who have seriously ill children being treated at John Radcliffe Hospital. It means they can stay close to their loved ones during a different period without having to pay for a local hotel or travelling long distances each day.
The facility will include communal living facilities such as kitchens, lounges, playrooms and laundry rooms, making it a true ‘home away from home’.
