American Family Care (AFC), one of the largest and most established operators of urgent care and accessible primary care facilities in the country, continues to expand its national footprint in October, opening a new clinic in Nashville. AFC, the second largest privately owned urgent care operator in the U.S., continues to grow throughout Tennessee, and this marks its seventh clinic in the Nashville area.

The Spring Hill clinic, located at 2070 Wall Street, Spring Hill, opened its doors October 13, with a grand opening set for October 29th. In addition to urgent care services, the clinic includes a U-SAVE pharmacy, AFC’s on-site pharmacy that helps save customers time and money. The clinic joins six other AFC centers, including Nashville West, Smyrna, Providence, Indian Lake, Nashville South and Madison Street Commons.

“We’re excited to offer the folks in the Nashville area the opportunity to get further access to quality health care with our new clinic in Spring Hill,” said Dr. Bruce Irwin, founder and CEO of American Family Care. “We are well-established in the Nashville community, and this is another way for us to serve them, saving them time and money.”

Founded by Irwin in Hoover, Ala., in 1982, AFC clinics offer accessible primary, urgent and emergency care and occupational medicine. Over the past 32 years, the company has expanded its footprint from a handful of clinics in Alabama to over 50 clinics in several states, including Georgia, Tennessee, Alabama and Florida. In 2013, AFC acquired Doctors Express, the largest national urgent care franchise creating AFC/Doctors Express brands across the country. By the end of this year, AFC/DRX will operate more than 160 facilities in 26 states and will serve more than 1 million patients.

All AFC clinics are designed, equipped, and staffed to provide accessible primary care, urgent care, minor emergency treatment and occupational medicine. They use a high-tech, high touch approach, with 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. The clinics are open daily from 8 a.m. to 6 p.m. and no appointments are necessary.
