Children’s Hospital Bought by McDonald’s Corporation…..
Houston, TX-Setting an unusual precedent, Texas Children’s Hospital was purchased today by the McDonald’s Corporation. Ronald McDonald himself was present at the press conference, along with employee liaison Grimace.
“This is sure to be only the beginning of a wonderful relationship between quality healthcare and the fast food industry,” TCH President and CEO Mark Wallace remarked. “This was by no means an easy decision however. Burger King put in a decent bid but McDonald’s just had more to offer. I like the Whopper better than the Big Mac but McDonald’s fries are better. That’s important to me and it’s important to my patients.”
Jarrod Knudson, pediatric resident at the Children’s Hospital, is excited about the transition. “There are going to be some bumps in the road, especially with the new drive through emergency department, but this is what’s best for the children. And I get free Happy Meals.”
