The Atlanta Ronald McDonald House Charities broke ground yesterday, Sept. 30, on a new facility at 5420 Peachtree Dunwoody Road in Sandy Springs. The expansion will allow ARMHC to almost triple their capacity for families while their children receive medical treatment at nearby hospitals. This LEED certified $18.5 million House will include 31 handicap accessible guestrooms and an indoor treehouse to aid families in the healing process through play.
