With Houston’s thriving medical center, the need quickly grew for a larger House. Therefore, in the fall of 1994, a $10M capital campaign was launched to secure funds for the construction of a new, larger 50-bedroom House. Located in the Texas Medical Center, RMH Houston’s Holcombe House opened its doors in 1997, and expanded to 70 bedrooms in 2018. In 2001, Ronald McDonald House Houston began offering in-hospital programs for the families whose children were admitted with critical illnesses. Now, not only does Ronald McDonald House Houston have the 70-bedroom Holcombe House, it also consists of Houses, Family Rooms, lounges, and private bedrooms inside Texas Children’s Hospital, Children’s Memorial Hermann Hospital and M.D. Anderson Children’s Cancer Hospital.
