One of the benefits of our investment opportunity that we’re most proud of is the comprehensive healthcare franchise training and support we offer all our franchisees, allowing them to take full advantage of our business model and leverage our robust industry. Our commitment to our franchisees means people from all walks of life and from all kinds of backgrounds can become part of the American Family Care family and provide valuable healthcare services to their communities. Let’s take a closer look at some of the ways we prepare and support our franchisees to do business successfully.
Pre-Opening Training Gets You Ready
Your life as an AFC franchisee begins before your healthcare doors open, when you spend two-and-a-half days of pre-opening training at our corporate headquarters in Birmingham, Alabama. There, we’ll bring you up to speed on everything you need to know about the AFC culture, our mission and values, and the day-to-day operations of your new urgent care center. You’ll also be introduced to our proprietary operations and procedures manual that details everything you need to know about important aspects of running your clinic, including recruiting, hiring, and staffing procedures, among other important topics.
After that, you’ll be assigned a dedicated Franchise Business Consultant who will help you stay on track and apply everything you’ve learned during your training. Because we understand that the success of the AFC brand depends on the success of each and every one of our franchise partners, we make sure our healthcare franchise training is complete and robust.
After Your Center Doors Open
Of course, it’s not enough to train you; it’s also critical that we support you as you grow your business and meet the needs of more and more in your community. To that end, we offer a suite of resources that enable our franchisees to stay in-the-know and up-to-speed on the latest trends and technologies that are shaping our industry. Some of these important resources include ongoing training programs and opportunities for professional development, valuable marketing materials — brochures, artwork, and radio scripts — that will help you reach your community and expand your territory, and a third-party customized software system that helps manage all aspects of your business, like patient intake, scheduling, and payroll. These kinds of resources not only make running your center more efficient, but free you up to focus on what’s most important: growth!
Our turnkey approach covers everything — from advice on site location and build-out, to software installation and staffing assistance. Our experts will help you at every turn and at every stage, giving you the assurance you need to start your career confidently and fully prepared.
Our healthcare franchise training is second to none! Reach out now to find out more about how we can prepare you to do business as part of the AFC family of urgent healthcare centers.
