When you decide to go into business for yourself and choose an urgent care franchise opportunity as your way of doing so, you’ll be entering a robust and growing industry, one that has taken on increased importance as we continue to grapple with the COVID-19 pandemic.
Deciding to become part of our industry is a good idea, for all kinds of reasons, but not all urgent care franchise opportunities are the same: some leverage the market better than others, and American Family Care is an example of that. We’ve been a leader in the healthcare industry for decades, and here, we’ll take a closer look at just how we differentiate ourselves from the competition — and what that means for our franchisees.
A Trusted Name in Healthcare
As more and more people look for alternatives to their local emergency rooms, AFC
continues to be a trusted resource for accessible urgent care, primary care, and occupational medicine to people in need. They appreciate not only the quality of services, but that they come without the hassle of long emergency room waits and scheduling issues.
With over 225 clinics currently part of the AFC family, and a comprehensive suite of services offered to each community we serve, we strive to be a convenient and reliable healthcare resource for Americans across the country.
A Time-Tested Business Model
Our respected business model has been refined and tested over the many decades we’ve been in business, which means you can count on it to leverage our robust industry to the fullest, and take a lot of the guesswork out of running your urgent care franchise opportunity. It also includes access to comprehensive support before and after you open your clinic.
Our support begins with formal classroom training sessions at our headquarters in Birmingham, Alabama, where we’ll cover all the basics of running your business. It continues with assistance helping you find and hire qualified care providers, initiating marketing campaigns, and much more! Lastly, our proprietary software, which handles everything from patient intake to payroll, makes running your clinic simple and efficient. These are just a few of the brand differentiators that separate us from the competition and that position our franchisees ahead of the rest.
Our TeleCare Telemedicine Portal
In response to the current coronavirus crisis, AFC has launched our TeleCare telemedicine portal, allowing us to provide virtual visits to patients, including assessment/screening of COVID-19 symptoms or any other healthcare problems, such as acute illnesses and trauma. Our brand makes it a point to stay on top of industry trends and cutting-edge technology, and our TeleCare portal is one example of the way we do so.
These are just a few of the ways AFC has remained not only competitive but a leader in our industry and a favorite of the communities we serve.
