New franchisees should be looking for an opportunity that allows them to provide a service to their community that is both unique and truly needed. Healthcare franchise opportunities let you to do just that, especially when you partner with American Family Care (AFC). As an AFC franchisee, you’ll be able to offer a comprehensive range of much-needed services that are far more affordable than emergency room care, and with less wait-time than in hospitals. Rather than simply serving as a basic urgent care clinic, you’ll have the ability to provide businesses with great occupational health services for their employees, and an easily accessible pharmacy for those who need important prescriptions. Here’s what makes AFC one of the country’s premier healthcare franchise opportunities.
Quick and Affordable Care
One of the reasons why urgent care is so quickly on the rise is that it helps alleviate traffic from clogging emergency rooms. The number of hospitals in the US is actually declining, while the number of ER visits is increasing — a trend that’s unsustainable, in the absence of a viable alternative to emergency rooms. For patients who simply can’t afford to wait in long lines, urgent care is the answer. Our healthcare franchise opportunity will allow you to take care of patients almost immediately, and at a cost they can actually afford.
While many believe that urgent care clinics offer limited services to patients, we actually treat nearly 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 for themselves. In addition to traditional medical care, AFC also provides X-rays, lab tests, and vaccinations. We don’t want patients to have to hop between multiple medical clinics, simply because they can’t get all the work done in one place. As a convenient, full service medical alternative to emergency rooms, we strive to be a one-stop shop for our patients.
Among our most valuable services are 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. When you invest in our healthcare franchise opportunity, you will work closely with local businesses to make our services affordable and accessible to their employees.
Filling the Market Gap
Americans have long been frustrated by the inefficiency of emergency rooms. Anyone with extensive experience in healthcare has recognized the many problems associated with them — and with the process of simply checking in with one’s primary care physician — and likely sees the opportunity to capitalize on the market gap. The convenience and affordability of AFC make us a realistic alternative to both the ER and primary care doctors. This is why revenue in the urgent care industry is expected to reach over $30 billion by 2020, at a growth rate of 3.8 percent.
