Ronald McDonald Care Mobile® Program
Delivering Hope on Wheels
The Ronald McDonald Care Mobile® Program is comprised of two of state-of-the-art vehicles that deliver free medical and dental care directly to underserved children in their own neighborhoods.
In the U.S. alone, almost 12 million children are uninsured and unable to obtain access to proper health care. In 2007, the Ronald McDonald Care Mobile® program saved families more than 10 million dollars in healthcare costs and on average, they serve 100,000 children in vulnerable populations each year. Nearly 60% of children seen on Ronald McDonald Care Mobiles do not have health insurance.
Each Ronald McDonald Care Mobile® is 40-feet long, 8-feet wide and include:
- Two patient exam rooms
- Reception area
- Medical records area
This program eliminates many of the barriers underserved families face in accessing healthcare services addresses the community’s most critical childhood health needs, reduces reliance on costly and inappropriate health resources, such as hospital emergency departments, and raises awareness of healthy lifestyles.
