Ronald McDonald House Charities® San Diego

Loading image. Please wait


The new Ronald McDonald House, located adjacent to Rady Children’s Hospital, creatively solves the problem of scarce and expensive land in San Diego’s hospital district.   The 65,000-square-foot House and exterior courtyards have been constructed on top of an existing six-story parking structure and feature 47 rooms for families with seriously ill children receiving treatment at the hospital.  By themselves, the new accommodations will be a major improvement over the existing House, which has only 12 rooms and has to turn away 100 families a month who need a place to stay while their children receive treatment at area hospitals.  All parties associated with the project saw the opportunity to further help the community by making the building LEED (Leadership in Energy & Environmental Design) certified.
