Absolutely shameful, and a great embarrassment to the hospitals and to McDonald’s alike. Seven of these hospitals are specifically for children, because I suppose there’s nothing like serving a Happy Meal to a four-year-old suffering from leukemia.
This is the sort of list that, if adequately publicized, will force McDonald’s to withdraw from this market. Here are the hospitals in question:
Abbott Northwestern Hospital, Minneapolis, MN; MCG Health Children’s Medical Center, Augusta, GA; Northside Hospital, Atlanta, GA; Naval Medical Center, San Diego, CA; Jackson Memorial Hospital, Miami, FL; Mercy Medical Center, Des Moines, IA; Cleveland Clinic, Cleveland, OH; Broward General Medical Center, Fort Lauderdale, FL; Memorial Regional Hospital, Hollywood, FL; Children’s Memorial Hospital, Chicago, IL; Riley Hospital for Children, Indianapolis, IN; Truman Medical Center, Kansas City, MO; Grady Memorial Hospital, Atlanta, GA; Rady Children’s Hospital, San Diego, CA; Ben Taub Hospital, Houston, TX; Methodist Rehabilitation Center, Jackson, MS; Texas Children’s Hospital, Houston, TX; Tampa General Hospital, Tampa, FL; Driscoll Children’s Hospital, Corpus Christi, TX; Kosair Children’s Hospital, Louisville, KY.
