The Ronald McDonald Care Mobile
Driven To Make Kids Healthier
The Ronald McDonald Care Mobile is a state-of-the-art pediatric clinic on wheels. Designed from the ground up to meet the specific well-care and treatment needs of children, it is staffed by pediatric doctors and nurses from Nationwide Children's Hospital, one of "America's Best Children's Hospitals" as ranked in U.S.News & World Report.
Providing services at little or no cost to the patient, the Care Mobile virtually eliminates financial and geographic barriers to health care access. All insurances including Medicaid are accepted. It also reduces the strain placed on local ERs by families using them for non-emergency care.
Working in partnership with your community's health care leaders, the Care Mobile bridges gaps between underserved children and local communities. It travels to locations that your community identifies as lacking in pediatric resources or underutilizing existing ones.
Because no two communities are exactly alike, the Care Mobile can address the most critical childhood health needs in your area. Whether it's providing immunizations, or increasing awareness on the benefits of a healthy lifestyle, it can provide the services that do the most good in your community.
The generosity of sponsors and donors make it possible for the Care Mobile to provide pediatric services in your community at little or no cost. If you would like to donate to help, call or visit our website.
