Ronald McDonald House Northland

Located in downtown Duluth

Since opening in February 2021, this beautiful five-bedroom facility has given families with seriously ill and injured children a place to relax and regroup, just steps away from Essentia Health’s Duluth campus. Like our four Twin Cities locations, RMH Northland offers a caring and comfortable home-away-from-home to families navigating a child’s health crisis.
