We launched the world’s 12th Ronald McDonald Care Mobile® on January 14, 2003. The Ronald McDonald Care Mobile® provides free dental and medical care to children in northern Illinois.
The Ronald McDonald Care Mobile® is a 40-foot, 26,000-pound mobile unit specifically designed for the delivery of pediatric health care. It houses two patient exam rooms and a sterilization area.
This program is intended for children who would otherwise not be able to obtain medical or dental care. A child is considered eligible if they qualify for Medicaid, BadgerCare (Wisconsin) or KidCare (Illinois), or if they have no insurance and cannot afford to pay for health services. If a child has private insurance, we ask that they see a physician or dentist in their community.
Since 2003, we’ve treated almost 16,000 children aboard the Ronald McDonald Care Mobile.
