RMHC Hospitality a la Carte

Due to the pandemic, all items are distributed by volunteers & area of service varies depending on hospital guidelines.

In 2017, the Hospitality a la Carte was launched to allow RMHC of Greater Chattanooga to expand its reach to not just families who stay at the House, but any family who has a loved one in the Children’s Hospital at Erlanger.

For parents and other caregivers who are reluctant to leave their seriously ill child even for just a moment, the bright and cheerful cart is a welcome sight.
