“Port Wentworth is a vibrant community serving one of the largest and fastest-growing ports in the country,” said Jeff Seraphine, Interstate Health chief executive officer (CEO). “As we continue to evaluate new locations where we can meaningfully bring our mission to life, the Port Fuel Center in Port Wentworth hits the mark. We are eager to serve the many drivers and other transport professionals who frequent the port, as well as the growing local community.”

“When we opened Port Fuel Center, we had a vision to serve our community and those who travel through – especially truck drivers going to and from the port – by creating an accessible option for basic needs like fuel, restrooms and food. When we met the Interstate Health team and heard their mission, there was clear alignment,” said Yash Desai, partner at Port Fuel Center. “We are proud to partner with Interstate Health opening this clinic on the Port Fuel Center property and are eager to watch the impact it makes.”

Earlier this month, Interstate Health opened a similar truck driver-friendly health clinic at the  Racine PETRO truck stop in Sturtevant, Wisconsin.
