At times, parents are able to lodge in patients’ rooms within the pediatric hospital. However, these families may not have the funds to go to the cafeteria or may need some time away from the hospital setting to gather their thoughts.

To support these families, the Ronald McDonald House of Danville offers the Day Guest Program. Families can have a respite from the sterile environment of the hospital by coming to the warm setting of the House where they can have a meal and relax. Our volunteers and donors make this program possible.

Our Day Guests enjoy a warmly decorated environment with all the comforts of home. Some just want a shower or meal while others take advantage of additional features:

  • Kitchen stocked with staple products
  • Laundry room stocked with laundry products
  • Comfortable living room
  • Private sunroom
  • Fun interior play room
  • Beautiful exterior playground
  • Two public TV rooms
  • Front exterior patio
  • Public Wi-Fi

The Ronald McDonald House of Danville is located on the campus of the Janet Weis Children’s Hospital at Geisinger Medical Center in Danville.
