As we reported on our blog in 2014, mobile medical clinics are ideally suited to occupational health as a means to bring healthcare costs down for employers, as well as provide a safe and healthy place to work for employees. By bringing certain testing services directly to the employees, companies can more easily control costs and ensure that their employees are actually getting the testing required. Read more »

They call themselves the Guardians of Rescue, a team of “ex-military personnel, retired police detectives, former FBI investigators, carpenters, electricians, and even former convicts and gang members” who have “united in their passion and dedication for animal advocacy.”
Around since 2010, the Guardians state their mission as “an animal rights and welfare organization whose members work to protect the well-being of all animals and their owners, and come to the aid of those in distress.”
And their work hasn’t gone unnoticed. They’ve had quite a bit of local and national news coverage about their organization. And most recently, The Animal Planet picked them up for a six-episode show, aptly titled “The Guardians“. Read more »
La Boit Specialty Vehicles’ client LifeShare Blood Centers was recently honored for the design work on their new 2016 La Boit-built bloodmobile. The 42ft Freightliner is the sixth La boit vehicle in their fleet. It includes four donor beds and all the equipment necessary to see dozens of donors per day.
The graphics on the bloodmobile are part of the “Beyond the Donation” campaign, in which both the truck and accompanying billboards featured two individuals who needed blood in a facility serviced by LifeShare Blood Centers. With the addition of a personal message, the campaign became more memorable than a general message about blood donation. Plus, the graphics just look really cool on the side of that shiny new bus.

34 years young… That’s how many years La Boit Specialty Vehicles has been in business, since owner and founder Gil Blais started working out of his garage building custom vet boxes for mobile veterinarians.
And since then, we’ve shown no signs of slowing down! 2016 was a banner year for us as custom coach builders for the professional sector. Our facility has been booked out for months, and demand continues to be very strong, as businesses and non-profits continue to invest in infrastructure that allows them to bring their services directly to constituents.

What can we say about Dr. Pat Gorman with Tobias Veterinary Services? She is one of the neatest folks we have ever met! Dr. Gorman picked up her brand new 26′ mobile veterinary clinic in May 2016 and is it ever gorgeous. She has everything in this unit you could possibly imagine – full DR x-rays, dental machine, surgery suite… you name it.
Dr. Gorman’s mobile clinic will service Chester County and Eastern Montgomery County in Southeastern Pennsylvania, just outside of Philadelphia. Since picking up the clinic, she, along with long-time trusted Vet Tech Phyllis Ruley, have taken it to several community events to help market their services and showcase the unit. Read more »
The SPCA of Texas has roots dating back to the 1880s, when one of its eventual subsidiaries, the Humane Society of Texas, first became established. Since then, the SPCA of Texas has grown to be one of the most respected animal welfare organizations in Texas, earning four-stars from Charity Navigator.
As a result, they boast some impressive numbers regarding their activities – over 5,000 animals admitted in 2015, 4,845 adoptions, and 13,000+ spay/neuter surgeries. And they’re hoping that the two brand new 26ft La Boit spay/neuter clinics they purchased will not only help them reach more animals, but specifically target under-served areas. Read more »
