What Are Some Perks You’ll Enjoy as an AFC Franchisee in the Healthcare Industry?
When you join the American Family Care (AFC) brand to take advantage of the healthcare industry, you immediately gain access to a host of perks that would not be available to you otherwise. Our time-tested business model is just one of them. It acts as a kind of roadmap, taking a lot of guesswork out of running your clinic and allowing you to focus on day-to-day operations. But that’s just the beginning! Here, we’ll look at a few more advantages that come with being part of the AFC family.
You Can Count on Our Recognized Brand Name
We’ve been industry leaders in healthcare since 1982, and today our clinics are in over half the 50 states, tending to the healthcare needs of millions of people every year. That makes the AFC name a recognized and respected one. When people get sick or need lab tests or physicals, they know they can turn to the AFC clinic in their neighborhood for quality affordable care without an appointment.
What does all that mean to you as an AFC franchisee? It means you won’t have to work nearly as hard to establish your clinic — we’ve already done that for you! Your community won’t think twice about relying on your AFC clinic because our reputation for excellence will have preceded it.
Furthermore, our comprehensive support includes helping you find and hire qualified care providers and initiate strategic marketing campaigns. Our proprietary software will let you smoothly handle everything from patient intake to payroll, making the operation of your clinic simple and efficient.
You’re in Business for Yourself but Not by Yourself
One of the distinct advantages of partnering with AFC to become part of the healthcare sector is all the training and support you’ll enjoy. It starts with comprehensive pre-opening training at our headquarters in Birmingham, Alabama, where we’ll cover all the basics of running your business. We know it’s vital that you start on solid footing, which is why we invest our time and resources into your training, making sure you leave confident in your abilities to run your clinic.
But our team of experts doesn’t disappear once you’re up and running. You’ll have access to resources designed to keep you up to date on the latest in our industry and provide you with relevant and practical answers to any questions or issues you may have. It includes:
- A comprehensive intranet site containing nearly all the operational information you’ll need to run your business smoothly
- A third-party customized software system that helps manage all aspects of your business, including patient intake, scheduling, and integrated payroll processing
- Marketing materials, such as brochures, artwork, and radio scripts that will help you reach your community and expand your territory
- Ongoing training programs, opportunities for professional development, phone support, and on-site visits
With these kinds of resources at your disposal, you’re not only able to run your center more efficiently but are free to focus on the welfare of your patients and the growth of your business.
