Ronald McDonald House Westmead is built on the simple idea that nothing else should matter when a family is focused on the health of their child – not where they can afford to stay, where they will get their next meal or where they will lay their head at night to rest. We believe that when a child is hospitalised the love and support of family is as powerful as the strongest medicine prescribed. In 2019, the House is expected to accommodate and support for over 1,200 families with a seriously ill child, allowing parents and carers to focus on the health of their child when they need it most.
