Interstate Health opened a new urgent and primary care clinic located in the Racine Petro at exit #333 on Interstate 94, just south of Milwaukee Mitchell International Airport and north of Chicago. The clinic will serve commercial drivers who frequent the Racine Petro, as well as local communities and travelers in need of healthcare services.

Interstate Health Racine is open Monday through Friday from 8 a.m. to 5 p.m. CST and offers primary care, urgent care, and occupational health services. This includes Department of Transportation and pre-employment physicals, preventative care and wellness visits, vaccines, medication management, and more. A complete list of services and contact information can be found on Interstate Health’s website.

“We are thrilled to open our new clinic in the Racine Petro, a premier truck stop that not only serves commercial drivers, but also is a landmark for the villages of Sturtevant, Mount Pleasant, and Yorkville,” said Jeff Seraphine, Interstate Health chief executive officer. “Our mission is to ensure access to quality healthcare for people who frequent America’s highways. By offering urgent care, primary care, and occupational health services to the people who know and trust the Racine Petro, we believe we are fulfilling our mission in a meaningful way.”

Interstate Health leaders and Racine Petro owner Michael Willkomm celebrated the opening of the new clinic this week during a ribbon-cutting ceremony and were joined by leaders from Racine Area Manufacturers and Commerce, as well as other local business leaders and representatives from the National Association of Truck Stop Operators.

Interstate Health launched in November 2022 with significant backing by veteran transportation and logistics executives. The company aims to solve the disparities in health and wellness for commercial drivers, who face increased risk of heart disease, obesity, diabetes, and hypertension, according to the National Institute for Occupational Safety and Health.

Additionally, Interstate Health will increase access to quality healthcare for rural communities along our highways. Since launching last year, the company has acquired a clinic in Cookeville, Tennessee, and broke ground on a clinic in Port Wentworth, Georgia., which is expected to open later this month.
