The mission of the Ronald McDonald House Charities of South Louisiana is to provide a "home-away-from-home" to families of seriously ill children and to provide programs that give comfort, compassion and care to children and their families.

Long-term care of each patient is a collaborative effort among the Ochsner team. Affordable, apartment style accommodations are also available for out-of-area patients and their families during a patient’s care. Each apartment is furnished, has a full kitchen, and is located within walking distance of the hospital. Social workers can provide more information about these special accommodations.
