Roadside Medical Clinic to expand reach
KNOXVILLE, Tenn. Roadside Medical Clinic + Lab, which currently has three locations, and Pilot Travel Centers have announced the opening of three new medical clinics, with plans for an additional six locations throughout the United States by the end of the year.
The new medical clinics, which cater to the 4.2 million professional truck drivers on the road nationwide, are located in Oklahoma City, Okla.; East St. Louis, Ill.; and Waco, Texas. Oklahoma City will begin providing health-and-wellness services on June 25, and the Waco and East St. Louis locations will be providing services in July.
All current and new Roadside Medical Clinics use advanced healthcare information systems, including iPads, telemedicine and the industry's first full-function electronic medical record system for professional drivers.
With its locations on the highways at Pilot Travel Centers, Roadside Medical provides convenient, cost-effective and professional medical care services, including DOT physicals and compliance; wellness programs; sleep apnea screenings, testing and treatment; and nutritional products.
"Our expansion to three additional locations is another step in our development of a coast-to-coast network to support professional drivers where they need us, on the road," stated Bob Perry, president of Roadside Medical Clinic + Lab and chairman for the American Trucking Associations Safety & Loss Prevention Management Council's Health & Wellness Working Group. "The clinics, in addition to our Driver Body Fuel products and wellness program, provide trucking companies and their drivers with the tools they need to stay on the road to good health."
