Home Away From Home

The Bakersfield Ronald McDonald House® is open to meet the needs of families of pediatric patients at Kern County hospitals and help reduce stress associated with having a hospitalized sick child. This is done in four ways -

¨ Provide three sleeping rooms for families who have traveled more than 25 miles from their residence for care. Each family is given their own room with an extension where they can be reached by hospital staff or family/friends;

¨ Provide a living room for target families who need a break from the “hospital environment;”

¨ Provide a place for a quick shower or nap during the day for target families who are not sleeping overnight; or

¨ Provide a resource center for families
