American Family Care Opens New Urgent Care in Birmingham Area

Bessemer Facility marks milestone for Alabama based health care leader

American Family Care (AFC), the nation’s leading provider of urgent care and accessible primary care, continues to expand its footprint by opening its fourth clinic in the suburbs of Birmingham, Alabama.  The corporately owned clinic will open just outside company headquarters in Birmingham at 5911 Harris Lane in Bessemer, Alabama. This is AFC’s 46th clinic in Alabama and 160th facility nationwide.
“We’re excited to continue fulfilling our mission of making quality health care accessible and economical with the opening of our medical center in Bessemer,” said Randy Johansen, President of American Family Care “The opening of this location gives us the opportunity to serve new patients, bringing them quality health care while saving them time and money.”
 Over the past 33 years, American Family Care has pioneered the concept of non-emergency room urgent care and expanded its reach to patients in more than 26 states. Of the 160 clinics nationwide, 69 are corporately owned and 91 are owned by franchisees.

All AFC medical centers are designed, equipped and staffed to provide accessible primary care, urgent care and minor emergency treatment.  Each clinic features a high-tech, high touch approach, including digital x-rays, on-site lab testing, state of the art diagnostics, and electronic medical records.  The clinics are staffed by kind, caring and compassionate health care professionals.  Most clinics are open daily from at least 8 a.m. to 6 p.m. and no appointments are necessary.
