Delivering hope on wheels

Ronald McDonald Care Mobile

Even before the impact of COVID-19, nearly two-thirds of children didn’t visit a physician’s office during their first year of life and more than half had no care from a medical professional in an office-based setting. Over the last several months, many families have faced countless challenges and felt the burden of the coronavirus. From stay-at-home mandates and job losses to forgoing health care visits and struggling to provide, the recent pandemic has profoundly affected life around the globe.

That’s where the Ronald McDonald Care Mobile comes in. The 40-foot-long mobile pediatric office travels directly into communities where there’s a need for preventive care for infants and children up to age 18. The Care Mobile delivers no-charge services to families without medical insurance but welcomes those with medical insurance as well.

“We know immunizations for many children were put on hold due to the pandemic,” Sarah GiaQuinta, MD, vice president of community health for Parkview Health, said. “The Care Mobile offers a convenient option to help keep kids on track and receive immunizations that are required for the school year.”

Additional services

This state-of-the-art care mobile features two patient exam rooms, a laboratory and a patient education center. In addition to immunizations, the Ronald McDonald Care Mobile also proudly provides more convenient access to health services, which include:

  • Well-child visits
  • Hearing, vision and lead screening
  • Strep testing
  • Influenza screening
  • Developmental screening
  • Fluoride treatments
  • Childhood health and safety education
