Ronald McDonald House Akron helps families cope better and focus on the needs of their sick child. We serve families that have a patient admitted or being treated at Akron Children’s Hospital (ACH), Cleveland Clinic Akron General special care nursery (operated by ACH), or Summa Health System special care nursery (operated by ACH). We are located directly across the street from ACH. All the comforts of home are provided, including a private room and bathroom for each family that is stocked with toiletries and fresh sheets and towels.
Our families share many comfortable common areas including a dining room, large kitchen, basement rec room, sitting areas, a private outdoor space and full service no charge laundry facilities. A hot meal is served every evening, and there is 24-hour access to the kitchen and fully stocked pantry. Coffee, water, juice drinks and snacks are made available daily.
