La Boit Specialty Vehicles Releases Mobile Concierge Medicine Vehicle

Designed to Serve Aging Baby Boomers

La Boit Specialty Vehicles has announced a new custom vehicle manufactured specifically for the healthcare industry, the Mobile Concierge Medicine Vehicle. This mobile medical clinic on wheels is designed to help healthcare providers cater to the increasing numbers of retiring “baby boomers” expected over the next several years.

According to the 2010 census, the number of individuals from 45-64 grew at a rate of 31.5% from year 2000, the fastest growth rate of any age group.

Gil Blais, President for La Boit Specialty Vehicles, says that La Boit saw a real need to help healthcare providers such as wellness centers and hospitals reach this important demographic.

“We asked ourselves, ‘How do we cater to these incoming retirees, who are accustomed to the finer things in life?’ Mobile Concierge Medicine just made sense,” says Blais.

The way Mobile Concierge Medicine works, indicates Blais, is that an allotted amount of members will pay the healthcare provider a yearly membership fee. With this fee, the mobile unit will come directly to an individual’s residence. Each wellness center or hospital will have a limited amount of clients that receive special services due to their membership. Medical care provided through the vehicle will be covered by an individual’s medical insurance, Medicare, Medicaid, or out-of-pocket.

“If you’ve ever had to wait at an urgent care office or the ER, you know the long hours and stress that goes with that visit,” says Blais. “With this mobile clinic, healthcare providers can have the office come directly to the client.”

Blais describes the vehicle itself as a fully-functioning clinic on wheels with all the conveniences of a doctor’s facility. Providers can perform wellness checks, dispense medications, full body x-rays, rheumatolgy, cardiac/pulmonary rehab, consultation, endocrinology/diabetes, family medicine, general internal medicine, infectious disease, lab services, nephrology, neurodiagnostic testing, occupational medicine, orthopedics and pulmonary medicine. Results can be then be e-mailed directly to the main hospital or doctor’s office from within the vehicle.

The Mobile Concierge Medicine Vehicle can also be used for wellness fairs, local events, or even in the midst of a disaster. According to Blais, La Boit mobile medical clinics have been utilized in many national emergency situations, supporting the medical needs of the affected area by acting as a triage site.

The Mobile Concierge Vehicle is built on a 26’ Ford E450 chassis with gas engine and dual generators. Blais states that the dual generators ensure that there is no down time.

“If a generator goes down, a backup generator kicks in and there’s no time loss,” he says.

As for costs, Blais states that they expect the unit to pay for itself in the first year of operation and continue to generate income for years to come.
