Mercy Children's Hospital
Accomodations for Out Of Town Parents
A variety of overnight accommodations are available for out-of-town parents.
Home Away From Home
Home Away from Home is located on the campus of Mercy St. Vincent Medical Center. It houses 15 guestrooms, each complete with two queen-sized beds and a private bathroom, telephone, TV and daily housekeeping services. A comfortable lobby, children's play area, vending machines, and a laundry room are also part of the facility. Rooms are available on a first-come, first-served basis.
The cost of the rooms are minimal and no money is requested at the time of check-in. When our guests check-out you will be given an informational letter and a return envelope. We ask for a $30 per night donation, but we encourage you to send only what you can afford, or what you think is fair given the length of staff and circumstances.
To request a room, call (419) 251-6400 24 hours a day/7 days a week. We do not accept reservations and have arrangements with a local hotel during those occassions in which we are not able to accommodate guests on our waiting list. Guests are responsible for the cost of the hotel.
Ronald McDonald House Charities
Arrangements can also be made at the local Ronald McDonald House, which is located at 3883 Monroe Street in Toledo, approximately a ten minute drive from Mercy Children’s Hospital. Rooms are available at no charge on a first-come, first-served basis. For those parents who are without local transportation, the Ronald McDonald House provides one free round-trip cab ride to Mercy Children’s Hospital per day. If you wish to stay at the Ronald McDonald House, please ask your nurse for details or call 419-471-4663.
