We know that families often want and need to stay near their loved ones while they are patients at St. Charles hospitals. And there’s a range of convenient options available for patient families including our family stay park, the Ronald McDonald House and local hotels.
JELD-WEN Family Stay Park
On the west side of the Bend campus, Jeld-Wen Family Stay Park is a free recreational vehicle park for families of our patients. This newly renovated and expanded RV park offers the convenience of being on hospital grounds and includes amenities such as water and electrical hook-up.
Please call admitting for more information: 541-382-4321 ext. 7539
Ronald McDonald House
Ronald McDonald House Charities of Central Oregon provides overnight lodging and home amenities to families who must travel to Bend seeking medical treatment for their child, ages birth through 21. The organization also provides overnight lodging for high-risk, pregnant mothers who require bed rest near their care provider at the hospital. A private bedroom with bathroom can accommodate up to six adults and one child per family. In addition to private overnight accommodations, the "House That Love Built" provides several home-cooked meals each week; common play, laundry, cooking and relaxation spaces. A golf cart can be driven to and from the hospital.
If you do not feel comfortable being across the street from your child, you may request access to the amenities of the Bend Ronald McDonald House (laundry, kitchen, pantry, play room, outdoors space, etc.) for day use only.
There is no charge for use of the facility. However, a $20 per night donation is suggested to help defray the $113 it costs the organization to provide overnight lodging.
Qualifying families will have a clear medical necessity for lodging, will have been referred directly by their child's physician and/or a hospital social worker and can pass both a preliminary qualification screening and a criminal background check.
For more information, call the house at 541-318-4950.
To receive a referral to the house, call Social Services at 541-382-4321 ext. 4950
There are several hotels and motels near each of our hospitals. Our Guest Services hosts are happy to provide patients and their families with brochures of local accommodations. The Central Oregon Visitors Association website also has an extensive list of lodging options and contact information.
