The Ronald McDonald Care Mobile is a mobile outreach clinic granted to our medical partner, the Community Health Alliance, that stops at 10 locations in Washoe County. Together, we deliver services designed to reduce reliance on emergency rooms. The program heightens awareness of healthy lifestyles and helps eligible families obtain government-assisted health insurance. The care is directed to children aged 0-5 and pregnant women.
Since 2003 we have served more than 16,410 children in Washoe County with more than 105,000 free appointments. By providing cost-effective medical, dental and health education services, the Ronald McDonald Care Mobile works to instill healthier habits for northern Nevada’s children.
