Now more than ever, an urgent medical care franchise in your community can make significantdifferences in the lives of its members. This is especially so when you partner with American Family Care (AFC). We’re leaders in the industry and have been providing importantmedical services to millions of people across the country since 1982. If you’re wondering just what you’d bring to your city or town as an AFC franchisee, here are three distinct and much-needed services that your community will rely on, year after year.
Illnesses, Injuries, and Accidents
Every day, young and older people alike suffer from common illnesses like ear infections, bronchitis, strep throat, or the stomach flu and are often forced to seek out care at their local emergency rooms. But the fact is, emergency rooms are meant for just that — emergencies — and these days, many of them are overwhelmed by patients with non-emergency health issues. Your AFC urgent medical care franchisewill have the potential to alleviate a lot of that stress and free up emergency rooms to focus on critical emergency care.
As one of our respected healthcare providers, you’ll be able to diagnose and treat common illnesses, as well as non-life-threatening injuries like broken bones and fractures, complex lacerations and cuts, whiplash, back pain, joint pains, and more. Furthermore, all our centers are open seven days a week with extended hours and accept most major health insurance plans, making them convenient and affordable places to visit when routine care is needed.
These days, there’s a real emphasis on testing for illnesses and being as prepared as possible for outcomes and treatments. Your urgent medical care franchisewill offer lab tests for illnesses like the flu and strep throat, as well as for common STDs or more complicated issues like arthritis, mononucleosis, and thyroid-related illnesses. Our labs feature high-end technology that allows us to perform important services on a walk-in basis quickly and accurately. This ability to resolve a community’s health concerns efficiently and without an appointment is just one differentiator that separates us from the other urgent medical care franchise opportunities out there.
Physical Exams and Occupational Health
There is perhaps no more essential an appointment on one’s calendar than the one for a physical exam. Staying healthy year-round requires planning ahead a little, and our board-certified AFC physicians are on hand to help with that. They can perform important physical exams to make sure the members of your community are in good health and don’t have any conditions that may lead to life-threatening illnesses. Your AFC franchise will become an invaluable place for people to monitor their health, scheduling their physicals ahead of time, or with no appointment necessary.
Your AFC urgent medical care franchisewill also be able to help businesses in your community by offering occupational health services that include OSHA-mandated surveillance medical exams, DOT physicals, employee drug testing, blood alcohol tests, pulmonary function test, lift tests, tuberculosis skin testing, and Hepatitis B testing, and much more.
