Roadside Medical Labs and Clinics and Pilot Travel Centers have announced they are teaming up to create a coast-to-coast network of retail medical clinics to address the health risks faced by over-the-road drivers.
Roadside said this endeavor marks a significant departure from the mindset of traditional transportation health care. "By developing health programs specifically for truckers and locating our clinics at Pilot Travel Centers, Roadside Medical will make it easy for drivers to integrate practical health care solutions into their schedules," said Joe Neely, Roadside CEO.
"The small monthly fee covers the cost of all DOT testing, and re-testing if necessary, but the program includes much more," he said. "We give drivers practical solutions to their most common ailments - with little steps we can start to reduce high blood pressure and cholesterol, and help with other problems like lower back pain and smoking cessation. Education and small, practical steps are key." Roadside Medical plans to offer its services in various subscription packages for an average of $15 to $30 a month, said Bob Perry, Roadside Medical vice president.
