How to Stay
Eligibility and Admission Process
For a family’s first stay at RMHC Phoenix, arrangements and referrals must be made in advance through the Social Services Department at the medical facility where the child is being seen, a physician’s office or by their staff. The medical representative should call our office at (602) 264-2654 between 9 AM and 9 PM as far in advance of your stay as possible.
Check-in and check-out hours are daily 9 AM to 9 PM
Because we must manage our occupancy around the uncertainty of illness and medical treatment, we may experience sudden, unpredictable room shortages. For that reason, please call 602-264-2654 at least 24 hours in advance of your planned arrival and check-in day to ensure space is still available.

Who May Stay

Ronald McDonald House opens its doors to up to 79 families each night, which requires a tremendous effort from our staff, volunteers, other families and very generous community donors. To provide for the health and safety of everyone involved, all families are asked to observe our House rules and Infectious Disease Policy. The Ronald McDonald House reserves the right to ask any family to check out at any time should it be considered necessary to preserve the health, well-being and safety of the other families at the House.
