McDonald House Birmingham is one of the largest in
the country with sixty-six bedrooms. Located in the
heart of Britain's second city it serves families
with a child sick in Birmingham Childrens' Hospital.
These families are not local, they come from all
over the country for the specialist treatment this
hospital offers. Ronald McDonald House provides them
with a home from home.

Hospital. A very special place.
Ronald McDonald House is just a short walk from the
hospital. Every room in the house has a direct phone
link to the child's ward.
To quote the words of Libby, the House Manager at
Birmingham, ours is a loud house.
While caring with a loving arm about each family its
philosophy is to have fun and to provide an
environment packed with activity while at the same
time having quiet spaces for those who need it.

another member of this loving, fun house team.
Birmingham Children's Hospital is one of the top
four specialist childrens' hospitals in the country.
As a nationally designated specialist centre for
epilepsy surgery the hospital sees patients from
Birmingham, the West Midlands and far beyond. The
hospital houses a neo-natal department and a
paediatric intensive care unit. As well as this the
facility is also a trauma centre for the West
Midlands, a national transplant centre and a centre
of excellence for complex heart conditions and the
treatment of burns, cancer, liver and kidney
disease. Accommodating all of these specialities
means that over 240,000 patients visit Birmingham
Children's Hospital each year.
Could this be the world's largest jigsaw puzzle ?
It stretches right across one wall in a room.
Goodness knows how many tens, no hundreds, of
thousand pieces it has within it.
