Request a Room


Due to an overwhelming demand Ronald McDonald House Akron (RMHA) is consistently full with a Waiting List.  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). You may request a room at RMHA either through the Reservation List or Waiting List by calling our House at 330.253.5400.

Reservation List Information:
We do accept reservations for certain procedures and circumstances. To see if you are eligible for a reservation please contact our office as soon as you receive a date for an upcoming procedure. In some instances, the doctor’s office will contact RMHA to make your reservation. You should call our House to confirm that your reservation was received and scheduled.  If your doctor’s office does not offer that service then you should contact us directly to make the reservation request. Due to the overwhelming need for our services there are times that our Reservation List is full. In those instances you will be placed on our Waiting List.

Waiting List Information:
If your child has been admitted to ACH unexpectedly please call our House as soon as possible to be placed on our Waiting List. Once a room becomes available we will contact you with the details. The amount of time on the Waiting List varies greatly. We are never sure when to expect our current guests to be discharged which makes your wait time hard to predict. If you are on the Waiting List feel free to call our office daily to check status.

Alternate Lodging:
The Reinberger Family Center is a short term stay facility located in ACH. Once you have been placed on our Waiting List we recommend that you check with the Reinberger Family Center 330.253.2201 for possible accommodations.

The two nearest hotels are Courtyard Akron Downtown (1.5 miles – 330.252.9228) or The Hilton Garden Inn Akron (3 miles – 330.733.2900).

Please Note

A room request is NOT a room reservation.

Please call RMHA at 330.253.5400 with any requests or questions.
