UrgentCareTravel and TruckPark Partner to Offer Convenient, Affordable Healthcare for Professional Drivers While on the RoadBrent Cavanar
During COVID pandemic, accessible driver health and wellness services more critical than ever
Miami, FL and Chicago, IL – September 21, 2020 – UrgentCareTravel (UCT), the only medical clinic network focused on providing convenient and affordable health care for professional truck drivers and fleets, and TruckPark, a pioneer in the transportation industry providing a one-stop-shop application for truck drivers, today announce a partnership to offer UCT’s health services to TruckPark customers.
Forty-eight per cent (48%) of professional drivers have a chronic condition (e.g., diabetes, hypertension, obesity) that restricts their Commercial Driver’s License to one year or less. Due to the lack of convenient medical care on the road where drivers work, and the high costs of health insurance and medical care, many drivers do not treat their chronic conditions as needed. This not only impacts their ability to drive, but also costs the trucking industry billions of dollars annually in lost productivity.
UCT Health, UrgentCareTravel’s affordable health membership program, offers no-deductible and no-co-pay services including health coaches, personalized care plans for chronic conditions, DOT physicals and drug screens, primary care services (e.g., sick visits and annual exams), in-clinic lab services (e.g., lipid profiles and A1C testing) and mail order pharmacy services. TruckPark customers will be able to access UCT Health’s services anywhere while on the road via telehealth and UCT’s walk-in medical clinics located at Pilot and Flying J Travel Centers.
“We congratulate TruckPark on taking the initiative to help keep drivers healthy and on the road,” said Siva Suresh, Founder and CEO of UrgentCareTravel. “TruckPark’s leadership in enabling truck drivers to reserve safe and secure parking combined with UCT’s affordable and convenient health services will keep drivers healthier and more productive.”
“We’re pleased to partner with UrgentCareTravel, as its commitment to driver health and wellness is a great addition to TruckPark’s focus on safe and secure parking,” said Anthony Petitte, Founder and CEO of TruckPark. “Drivers experience a lot of stress and it can be difficult to receive medical care and maintain their health while on the road. Drivers are also dealing with the challenges of COVID-19. This partnership will help our customers stay heathier.”
TruckPark customers can easily sign up for UCT Health by registering from the TruckPark website and can contact customer service for more information.
