Ronald McDonald House at Stanford celebrates opening of new residence

The new building has 67 private family suites for families who have children hospitalized at Lucile Packard Children's Hospital Stanford.

The new building is part of Ronald McDonald House at Stanford, which previously comprised just one residence with 47 suites. The addition of the new residence, which is next door to the original one, is expected to alleviate the nightly waiting list of 40-50 families seeking accommodations.
