LAS VEGAS, NV (August 20, 2009) — As the nation’s first recognized network of retail health clinics for over-the-road professional drivers, Roadside Medical Clinic + Lab, is pleased to announce Dr. Royce Brough has received licenses for eleven Roadside Medical Clinic + Lab sites throughout Texas, California, New Mexico, New Jersey, Indiana and Oklahoma. As a practicing emergency room physician with more than 35 years of experience and founder of The Brough Group and Hospital Physicians of America, Inc., Dr. Brough has experienced first-hand the health challenges that professional over-the-road drivers face while on the road.
The Brough Group was founded in 1977 as an emergency physician staffing company providing services to community hospitals in Texas, Georgia, Mississippi, and Arkansas with plans to expand nationwide. Over the years the company has also provided locums emergency physician coverage, ownership of medical clinics, ownership of a community hospital, and other medically related endeavors. Hospital Physicians of America, Inc., Roadside Medical Clinic + Lab franchises, clinic and hospital ownership/management, and international expansion of other medical ventures in Costa Rica are the newest additions to The Brough Group International.
Roadside Medical Clinic + Lab began offering franchising and licensing opportunities within a limited number of markets in February 2009. Since then the company has secured sites in Tennessee, Arkansas, Illinois and Georgia. Through an exclusive partnership with Pilot Travel Centers, Roadside Medical provides cost effective and professional convenient care medical services including DOT physicals and compliance, wellness programs, sleep apnea studies and treatment, and nutritional products in a convenient location for drivers. Pilot 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 a total of 80 sites throughout the U.S. located exclusively at Pilot Travel Centers in order to meet the needs of the 4.2 million over-the-road professional drivers.
“Keeping with our mission to deliver convenient healthcare to professional drivers coast to coast we are pleased to be working with Dr. Royce Brough to grow a national network with velocity through franchising and licensing,” says Bob Perry, a.k.a. “The Trucker Trainer,” President for Roadside Medical Clinic + Lab and Vice Chair for the American Transportation Association Safety Management Council’s Health & Wellness Working Group. “Dr. Brough is an accomplished physician and we are fortunate to have him on board with Roadside Medical Clinic + Lab.”
Dr. Brough will be opening a location in Oklahoma City, OK within the next 90 days followed by Dallas, TX in the first quarter of 2010. Roadside Medical Clinic + Lab is working alongside Dr. Brough to support his efforts to open the remaining sites as quickly as possible to meet the needs of professional over-the-road drivers.
“After meeting Bob Perry and carefully reviewing the goals of Roadside Medical Clinic + Lab, I felt not only that it was an invaluable investment opportunity to reach an underserved segment of patients, but had an excellent chance of success by meeting the medical needs of people who definitely need quality care,” says Dr. Royce Brough, franchise owner of Roadside Medical Clinic + Lab and founder of The Brough Group International and Hospital Physicians of America, Inc. “Professional over-the-road drivers need to be taken care of just like the rest of society and Roadside Medical’s approach of providing not only medical care, but a comprehensive wellness program is key to keeping them on the road.”
