Pilot Flying J improves Knoxville truck drivers healthcare access

KNOXVILLE - America’s 3.8 million truck drivers are an integral piece of the country’s infrastructure, yet 65 percent do not have a primary care provider, leading to a lack of accessible healthcare. Not only does this exacerbate the chronic conditions professional drivers are already plagued with such as obesity (80 percent) and sleep apnea (50 percent), it costs the industry millions in lost productivity every year as drivers seek out or wait for health services.

Pilot Flying J, the largest operator of travel centers in North of America, has partnered with UrgentCareTravel to address this issue. Medical clinics located at Pilot and Flying J Travel Centers offer drivers access to comprehensive medical services - from primary and urgent care visits, to chronic disease management, to lab services and Department of Transportation physical exams – without ever leaving the highway. The location in Knoxville can be found at 7200 Strawberry Plains Pike.
