All Urgent Care Facilities Are Not Created Equal

At American Family Care (AFC), we put the patient first. And that is why you will be treated by an MD and not a Nurse Practitioner.

In June of 1982, D. Bruce Irwin, M.D. opened his first clinic in Hoover, AL. The clinic was completely as he envisioned. The company's model of "putting the patient first" has made it an overwhelming success. The clinics are designed, equipped and staffed to provide accessible primary care, urgent care, minor emergency treatment, and occupational medicine. AFC uses electronic medical records and has a high-tech, high-touch approach to medical care, digital x-ray system and on-site laboratory. All clinics are staffed with kind, caring and compassionate healthcare professionals.

Last year, AFC celebrated its 30th Anniversary. AFC has treated over 10 million patients in its 30 year history. AFC has an aggressive growth plan with the acquisition of Doctors Express (DRX), the largest national urgent care franchise. The acquisition became effective on April 15, 2013. With the DRX acquisition, AFC became the largest privately owned urgent care operator in the country. By the end of 2013, AFC/DRX will operate more than 140 facilities in 26 states, providing care to more than one million patients.

It is our mission to provide the best healthcare possible in a kind and caring environment, while respecting the rights of all patients in an economical manner, at times and locations convenient to the patient.

The company's vision and mission for healthcare is the same today as it was in 1982. AFC is nationally recognized as a leader and innovator in the delivery of accessible primary care. As Dr. Irwin has said many times, "Without our patients, AFC would serve no purpose. After thirty years of caring, we are still here and growing."
