Stay With Us
The Ronald McDonald House at Vidant Medical Center is located on the first floor of the James and Connie Maynard Children’s Hospital. The space features a 2,500 sq. ft. common area for use by all families, as well as six guest rooms. This facility is open to all families of pediatric patients, whether the child is hospitalized overnight or is here for an outpatient procedure. This area offers families a much-needed place of respite just steps away from their hospitalized children. Our hope is to bring comfort and care to even more families, giving them a home-like atmosphere right inside the hospital.
