Ronald McDonald House Charities of the Ohio Valley (located in Evansville, IN) has:
- Two Ronald McDonald House locations:
- Ronald McDonald House Washington: located on the St. Vincent campus. This House has ten bedrooms, three kitchens, a large dining area, several family living/play rooms and a sensory room. Since opening our doors in 2010, RMHC has helped more than 10,000 children, parents and extended family members.
- Ronald McDonald House Gateway: located on the Deaconess Gateway Campus.
