27 Jun Watch Now: Oakland House Opening and Block Party Video Recap!
Hundreds of community members gathered for an extraordinary day on Saturday, May 20, 2023, for our Oakland House Opening and Block Party to celebrate the new 7-bedroom Ronald McDonald House, located directly across the street from UCSF Benioff Children’s Hospital Oakland.
Set to be the first Ronald McDonald House in Oakland to serve bone marrow transplant patients at UCSF Benioff Children’s Hospital Oakland. BCH Oakland provides bone marrow transplant services to more than 20 children a year. After a lengthy hospital stay before and after surgery, these highly immune-compromised children are discharged and closely monitored for 100 days, requiring them to be near the hospital as they recover. Ronald McDonald House Oakland will provide free specialized housing to children and families who need long drive times between home and the Oakland hospital.
Ronald McDonald House Oakland will also provide housing, meals, psychosocial support, access to medical care, and the healing power of family and home to families with critically ill children.
