RONALD McDONALD CARE MOBILE

Providing access to health care where children need it most

From focusing on the treatment of pediatric cancer in Poland to ophthalmology in Thailand and immunizations in New Orleans, 50 Ronald McDonald Care Mobiles are providing access to health care where children need it most.

What makes the Ronald McDonald Care Mobile program unique?
When it comes to delivering health care, our Ronald McDonald Care Mobiles take a holistic approach.

  • Prevention: We deliver health education, which reduces overall medical costs, addresses behavior and lifestyle choices and helps motivate families to improve and maintain their health.
  • Treatment: We provide services ranging from immunizations and preventive check-ups to dental care and treatment for chronic and acute illnesses.
  • Referral: Our staff works with families to help them get access to ongoing care with a primary doctor or dentist.


Services for Families
All Ronald McDonald Care Mobile services are provided in a 40-foot long, 8-foot wide, state-of-the-art vehicle built specifically for delivering pediatric health care services. Each vehicle, which ultimately costs around $500,000 to get on the road, includes two patient examination rooms, a laboratory, and reception and medical records areas.

Depending on community needs, Ronald McDonald Care Mobile services may include:

  • Primary care, well-child visits and developmental screening

  • Oral hygiene education
  • Asthma treatment and self-management education

Building upon unique expertise and strong relationships
RMHC Chapters and local clinical service providers work together to apply their administrative, clinical and operational expertise and community resources to identify gaps in care, then deliver services tailored to the needs of their community. Together, they deliver services that go beyond treatment; they reduce reliance on emergency rooms, heighten awareness of healthy lifestyles, and help eligible families obtain government-assisted health insurance and more.
