Intellect IT provides IT support services to Ronald McDonald House Monash, Australia. Intellect IT are a proud supporter of Ronald McDonald House Monash (RMHM) which provides a ‘home away from home’ for families of seriously ill children who need to travel from rural and remote areas to receive treatment at Monash Children’s Hospital.
Facilities at the House include 13 bedrooms, 2 self-contained units, 24 hour access, a large communal kitchen, 2 laundries, 4 lounge rooms, a children’s play area, outdoor courtyard and off street parking. Without this facility families would be faced with sleeping in the hospital wards, in their cars or paying for expensive motel accommodation, sometimes for months on end.
Since opening in 1993 over 9,000 families have stayed at Ronald McDonald House Monash with many returning with their child to undergoing subsequent treatment. Each year over 450 families utilise the House to be close to their child Monash Children’s Hospital where their child is receiving treatment.
“Nursing a child through serious illness or disability is the most traumatic experience any family can endure. We know because our families tell us this. We also know what a difference we make, to ease the burden during the most difficult period of their lives. The families staying at the House draw the warmth, laughter and inspiration from each other where there is a friend to talk to, a shoulder to cry on, a smile to share with someone walking the same difficult path in life“. Jamie Evans, Chairman, Board of Management
