New State-Of-The-Art Facility Will Deliver Much Needed
Affordable, Quality Healthcare to Northern Liberties Neighborhood
Philadelphia – American Family Care (AFC), the nation’s leading provider of urgent care, accessible primary care services, and occupational medicine, continues to expand its national healthcare network with the opening of the latest AFC urgent care center in the Northern Liberties neighborhood of Philadelphia, Pennsylvania. The new state-of-the-art facility is seeing patients seven days a week at 180 West Girard Avenue (2nd and Girard).
“We are extremely excited about the opening of our facility in Northern Liberties, as we are providing a much-needed health care option to the residents in its neighborhood, along with Fishtown, Kensington, and beyond,” says Matthew Maiorino, AFC independent owner and operator. “Our new AFC is accessible to thousands of families who have been spending time and money to travel into Center City or across town for urgent care. Further, with our free attached parking garage and close proximity to I-95, we believe we will be able to make urgent care more accessible for a massive segment of Philadelphians.”
AFC Northern Liberties is one of 17 AFC Urgent Care centers in Greater Philadelphia. Each AFC provides a comprehensive suite of medical services and is staffed with skilled medical professionals who are deeply committed to providing outstanding healthcare.
