Ronald McDonald House Monash
Ronald McDonald House Monash provides a welcoming, caring and supportive home-away-from-home for families who need to travel to care for their seriously ill child at Monash Children’s Hospital.
Each family who stays at the House has their own unique story, but all have a place to rest and recover so they can face their challenges. We offer families a shoulder to lean on yet privacy when they need it. Families have safety, comfort and peace of mind when they stay with us.
Located in Clayton on the hospital grounds, the House is just a few minutes’ walk from the hospital wards. We are open 24 hours a day, 7 days a week, 365 days a year and can accommodate up to 15 families each and every night.
The Orbost Poker Run has been a major fundraising event for the House and has raised over $243,874,70.
the Orbost Poker Run is recognized as a major supporter on our Tree of Life and Adopt a Room partner of a Lounge in the House.
