When starting a new franchise, you want to make sure you are investing in a company that appeals to a broad market, and keeps people coming back. Customer loyalty is key to every successful business, and our patients understand the immense value of an urgent care facility. An American Family Care franchise isn’t merely a doctor’s office. Our doctors and nursing staff are trained to handle a wide range of illnesses and injuries, as well as medication administration. We also offer lab tests and vaccinations to provide a truly holistic experience, and make AFC a one-stop shop. We pride ourselves on the fact that our clients can have a wide array of medical needs expertly handled under one roof, and it’s why our customers immediately see the value of AFC and continue to come back.
It’s a common misunderstanding that emergency care clinics offer limited services to patients. In fact, we treat everything from serious illnesses and injuries to preventative care and pediatric medicine. Many people don’t realize just how comprehensive our clinics can be until they visit one of our urgent care facilities for themselves. One of our most valuable services is our occupational health offerings. Utilized by many businesses, this service is invaluable for companies looking to keep their employees healthy and provide quality health care. We work closely with businesses to make our services affordable and accessible. From individuals to businesses, opening an AFC franchise means you will be welcoming a wide range of clients into your clinic.
One of the main reasons patients love AFC is because our urgent care facility operates more efficiently than an ER. Most emergency room visits are actually unnecessary, and instead could be handled by urgent care clinics. With more and more people needing emergency care and ER lines growing longer and longer, urgent care clinics are in high demand. In addition to covering a wide range of illnesses, injuries, and other health concerns, we also are a one-stop-shop for X-rays, many lab tests, and vaccinations. Patients shouldn’t have to hop between multiple medical clinics to get their needs taken care of. When you open an urgent care franchise, you’re opening an affordable, convenient alternative that will become an important part of your community.
Filling a Market Gap
Americans are attracted to urgent care clinics primarily because they’ve become incredibly fed up with the inefficiency of emergency rooms. Long wait times for primary care physicians have gotten out of control, and anyone with extensive experience in healthcare has recognized the myriad of problems associated with emergency rooms. Fortunately for us, this means there’s a huge opportunity to capitalize on the market gap. The convenience and affordability of AFC make us a welcome alternative to both the ER and primary care doctors, which customers truly appreciate. That’s why it’s not surprising that revenue in the urgent care industry is expected to reach over $30 billion by 2020, at a growth rate of 3.8 percent.
