Knoxville, TN (PRWEB) August 31, 2015
American Family Care (AFC), the nation’s leading provider of urgent care and accessible primary care, is enhancing its existing presence in Tennessee with the opening of a new urgent care facility at 9203 Kingston Pike in Knoxville. The location is the company’s second in Knoxville, sixteenth in Tennessee, and 148th in the U.S. overall.
“We’re excited to continue fulfilling our mission of making quality healthcare accessible and economical with the opening of our newest medical center in Knoxville,” said Dr. Bruce Irwin, Founder & CEO of American Family Care. “The opening of this clinic, along with several additional AFC locations planned for the Knoxville area in the coming months, provides us the opportunity to serve the community with quality healthcare in a manner that also saves 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 footprint to more than 26 states. All AFC clinics 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.
AFC’s newest Knoxville location will also feature a full suite of occupational medicine and workers compensation services. These services include OSHA-mandated medical surveillance exams, D.O.T. and non D.O.T. drugs screens and physicals, and blood alcohol tests, among many other services. “A healthy workforce is a fundamental ingredient for a healthy business,” said Dr. Irwin. “Injured employees impact a company in terms of both worker's compensation expenses and lost production time, so we work hard to help make it simple and affordable to keep employees healthy.”
