“The soon-to-be-built Ronald McDonald House will be able to serve as a respite for patients and families whose infant or child is ill by offering a place to stay, food to eat, and a place to rest and recharge that is in close proximity to the hospital. There is nothing more cherished than the ability to be able to focus on the care of your child without having to worry about daily life logistics.” 

Carol Gomes, CEO and COO of Stony Brook University Hospital

Thanks to the dedication and support of so many, we have raised $24 million towards our Capital Campaign to build a Ronald McDonald House in Suffolk County, but we still have six million dollars left to raise and look forward to officially beginning construction this year.
