Mission & Vision

mother and son

Thousands of families travel to renowned area hospitals when their child is ill or injured. Since 1993, Ronald McDonald House Charities of Madison has provided a continuum of care for those who live hours or even a plane ride from their child’s treatment.

Through the Ronald McDonald House® and Ronald McDonald Family Room® at SSM Health-St. Mary’s Hospital, a compassionate environment provides families a place to rest and restore while remaining close to their hospitalized child.

In addition, our Ronald McDonald Care Mobile provides free wellness checks and immunizations to children in underserved areas throughout Northern Illinois.
