Driving the future of family-centered care

Our programs help keep families emotionally and physically involved in their child’s healthcare

RMHC enables and promotes family-centered care, a critically important part of caring for, and supporting, children with serious medical conditions.

Family-centered care is an approach to healthcare where the entire family is fully supported, engaged, involved and able to make informed decisions about the care and support services provided to their sick child.

RMHC & The Medical Community

Our partnerships help bridge access to health care around the world and help keep families and sick children near the care they need. Healthcare workers of every level and specialty contribute to RMHC, helping us expand our program capacity and change children’s lives around the world.

RMHC works closely with the medical community to enable and evolve family-centered care.

  • Children and families being served at 90% of the top children’s hospitals worldwide receive care from at least one RMHC core program.
  • High quality effective health care relies on the accommodation and support services we provide to families.
  • Medical professionals contribute to RMHC on a personal level — locally and globally!
