Ronald McDonald House Charities of Chicagoland & Northwest Indiana has formed a new relationship with Cadence Health and Central DuPage Hospital to build its fifth Ronald McDonald House in the region.

The new Ronald McDonald House will be near the Central DuPage Hospital (CDH) Campus in Winfield. It will serve families with pediatric patients being treated at CDH, Delnor Hospital or the CDH Cancer Center and the CDH Proton Center, A ProCure Center in Warrenville. The house will feature up to 12 private guest rooms with private baths, and will be designed to create a nurturing and supportive “home away from home” for families.

Construction is expected to begin early in 2014, with a projected completion in 2015.

Additional Ronald McDonald Houses are located:

Near Advocate Children’s Hospital, 4410 West 93rd St., Oak Lawn

Near Loyola University Medical Center, Tripp Avenue at Airmail Road, Hines

Near Lurie Children’s, 211 E. Grand Ave., Chicago
