OUR MEDICAL CARE BUSINESS
About the American Family Care Franchise
FOUNDED 1982 BY DR. BRUCE IRWIN, MD
The first American Family Care franchise (AFC) was opened in 1982 by D. Bruce Irwin, M.D. Since then, our model of “putting the patient first” and providing an alternative, non-emergency room option for urgent care has made us an industry leader and a patient favorite at our clinics throughout the country. As the urgent care market has grown, our clinics have led industry trends. All AFC centers provide access to primary care, urgent care, minor emergency treatment, and occupational medicine, and our community outreach efforts have helped us treat countless patients in our clinics across the U.S.
INDUSTRY & FRANCHISE LEADERS
Read on to see why our urgent care franchise opportunities stand out in the industry.
Our proven business model
AFC Family & Urgent Care Company Details
Through a high-tech, high-touch approach, AFC has pioneered the concept of non-emergency room urgent care, offering patients a simple and efficient alternative to lengthy and frustrating trips to the ER. Our average patient visit lasts about an hour from registration to discharge. Each AFC urgent care clinic offers:
On-site access to digital x-rays
Electronic medical records
Well-trained teams of medical professionals
This wide range of services, coupled with our conveniently located clinics and flexible hours, mean communities have easier access to quality care than ever before.
We work with franchisees who have backgrounds in the medical field as well as newcomers to the industry. Our expertise on subjects like urgent care credentialing requirements and how to staff an urgent care center greatly simplifies the startup process for both of these groups.
Our Brand Strength

Residents of the communities we serve love knowing that they can rely on our knowledgeable staff when they need urgent, non-emergency care. Our conveniently-located clinics don’t just make life easier for our patients – they also allow the emergency rooms in the territories we serve to spend more time treating true emergencies, while we take care of the rest.
“Without good health, wealth is meaningless, and happiness is elusive.”
