However, McDonald's pays rent for these premises, and this earns the pediatric health care extra money that they always need. McDonald's also gives millions of dollars for the hospital's foundations and other charity works.

Many hospitals do not want to send this wrong message as they as well discourage patterns of eating fast foods. Dr. Vishal Avinashi started a campaign on Facebook for hospitals to make a change. He said that he had seen doctors in line remove their tag when ordering the super-value meals at the McDonald’s restaurants.

This is because it is consistent, available for twenty-four hours in a day, the services are quite fast and efficient, and the prices are low compared to other restaurants. According to Parikh (n.p), some children at the hospital become so skinny as they have had their appetite sapped by
