The Ronald McDonald House Columbia, SC opened May 18, 1983. In 1996, Ronald McDonald House Charities (RMHC) Columbia, SC was formed, merging Pediatric Family Services of the Midlands and Ronald McDonald Children's Charities. Today, RMHC Columbia, SC is an active, energetic organization with a volunteer board of directors and professional staff serving families and children through two cornerstone programs, the Ronald McDonald House and the Ronald McDonald Family Room. The first Family Room opened in Palmetto Health Richland Hospital in 2003. Then in 2008, with the construction of the new Children's Hospital, a new Family Room opened on the first floor of the Children's Hospital and serves families of children receiving care within the hospital. We are supported by a caring community of volunteers and generous contributors and sponsors. Learn more at RMHCofColumbia.org or by connecting with the RMHC on Instagram, Facebook, and Twitter.
