Ronald McDonald Care Mobile

Our Ronald McDonald Care Mobile® (RMCM) is a state-of-the-art vehicle that delivers cost-effective medical and dental services directly to children in their own neighborhoods. The RMCM is built and designed specifically as a pediatric health care center with care for children ages 0-21. We offer a range of services − from dental care to school and sports physicals. Should you require specialty care, we are happy to refer you to other qualified community providers.

Ronald McDonald House Charities® of Southern Colorado began operations in 1987 and partners with Peak Vista to provide the Ronald McDonald Care Mobile.
