Ronald McDonald Care Mobile

Ronald McDonald Care Mobile

While we have seen exceptional advancement in medical care for children, thousands of children in our community do not have access to facilities. Fortunately, RMHC-CNI helps address this need through our Ronald McDonald Care Mobile, a fully equipped medical office on wheels.


The Care Mobile serves as a state-of-the-art medical clinic and delivers cost effective care directly to under-served children in their own neighborhood. The vehicle is 40-feet-long, 8-feet-wide and incorporates two patient exam rooms, a waiting room and a medical records area. 


The program’s focus is to provide initial health screening, immunizations, primary care treatment, and referral/follow up appointments for everyday and serious medical needs. 


Since 2008, Advocate Children’s Hospital’s Care Mobile partnership with RMHC-CNI has been widely successful in addressing the needs of high-risk pediatric populations throughout southern Chicago and parts of northern Illinois. 


To date, RMHC-CNI has served over 14,000 children in the Chicagoland area who would have otherwise gone untreated. We are proud of the care and compassion that the Care Mobile is providing to children in need and thank Advocate Children’s Hospital for partnering with us in these efforts.


“Advocate Children’s Hospital has been fortunate to have a great relationship with RMHC-CNI. Over the past two years, we have expanded our services to the Northern and Northwest suburbs and have provided care for over 4,600 children. These children are now able to stay in school, receive necessary immunizations and get connected with a primary care provider to establish a medical home. These lives could not have been touched without our current partnership, and the children, their families and their schools are so grateful!”
