How to Stay

The Ronald McDonald House accepts families of children 21 and under in age who are coming to New Orleans for medical treatment. These families must live at least 25 miles outside of New Orleans.

A family must first receive a referral from one of the following professionals in the hospital or doctor’s office where they are receiving treatment in New Orleans:

  1. Hospital Social Worker
  2. Doctor
  3. Doctor’s Nurse

You may download and print a referral form to bring to your medical provider by clicking here (pdf).

Once the referral is received, it will be filed under the date the family is due to arrive. The family MUST confirm with us as early as possible on that day. All rooms at the Ronald McDonald House are on a first come, first serve basis. We do not reserve any rooms prior to receiving a confirmation from the family.

If a room is available, you will be asked to check in by 8:00 pm. If this is not possible, special arrangements can be made with the Executive Director.

If you would like more information, please call Helen Stone at (504) 486-6668.

Our hope is that you can find the Ronald McDonald House to be a pleasant and comfortable “home away from home” while your child is receiving medical treatment in the hospital or in out patient care.
