Portland, OR. The new South Waterfront Ronald McDonald House opened at the OHSU Gary and Christine Rood Family Pavilion on January 23rd. The 38-room Ronald McDonald House replaced the previous West House at the Marriott Residence Inn. The new house is the largest in Oregon – offering play spaces, game rooms, an expansive family kitchen and dining area and a three-quarter acre rooftop garden and playground. It’s just a short tram ride away from OHSU Doernbecher Children’s Hospital.
Almost 35 years ago the first RMHC West House was opened in Portland. Pictured at the new location are CEO, Jessica Jarratt Miller alongside Dr. Dana Braner, Physician in Chief at OHSU Doernbecher Children’s Hospital.
