Roadside Medical Clinic + Lab and Pilot Travel Centers are opening three new medical clinics in Oklahoma City, OK, East St. Louis, IL, and Waco, TX. Oklahoma City will begin providing health and wellness services to professional drivers beginning June 25 and the Waco and East St. Louis locations will be providing services starting in July.

The companies pointed out that 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. These tools streamline reporting, improve adherence to wellness and weight loss programs, and lower administrative and direct healthcare costs for drivers and companies alike on a nationwide scale.

Via its exclusive locations at Pilot Travel Centers, Roadside Medical provides professional medical care services, including DOT physicals and compliance, wellness programs, sleep apnea screening, testing and treatment, and nutritional products in a convenient location for drivers. According to Pilot, it is the largest operator of travel centers in the U.S. with more than 300 locations in 41 states.

Roadside Medical Clinic + Lab has planned for an additional six sites throughout the U.S. by the end of 2010 “in order to meet the needs of the 4.2 million over-the-road professional drivers.”

“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,” said Bob Perry, president of Roadside Medical. “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.”

“We are pleased to partner with Roadside Medical Clinic + Lab to improve the lives of our customers,” said Jimmy Haslam of Pilot Travel Centers. “Our goal is to be a total solution provider for all driver services, and Roadside Medical Clinic + Lab is helping us deliver medical services. The evidence supporting driver health initiatives is too staggering to ignore. Providing drivers with healthy options and access to medical care isn’t just good business, it’s the right thing to do.”
