AFC Doctors Express is now AFC Urgent Care
American Family Care (AFC) Urgent Care, a national leader in urgent care walk-in clinics, is rebranding with a new logo and name change from AFC Doctors Express to AFC Urgent Care. Lower Fairfield County centers are located at 3000 Summer Street, Stamford; 607 Main Avenue, Norwalk; and 161 Boston Avenue, Bridgeport. The Fairfield, Connecticut center at 1918 Black Rock Turnpike launched as AFC Urgent Care last October.
More than 160 facilities across the U.S. will be united under the AFC Urgent Care name by early next year.
American Family Care, the parent company of AFC Doctors Express and AFC Urgent Care, handles more than 2 million patient visits annually. The urgent care services pioneer has more than 33 years of experience in the field. This initiative will increase brand awareness, ensure adherence to AFC’s established standards of practice for medical care and allow centers to take full advantage of its world-class resource network.
All AFC Urgent Care clinics will retain the same doctors, nurses and other staff whom patients know and trust, deliver the same high-quality care, offer the same convenient access and hours, accept the same insurance plans and maintain current copays and other fees. Each facility will continue to operate under local owners who live and work in the communities AFC serves.
With four sites in coastal Connecticut plus three clinics in Danbury and West Hartford, AFC now counts seven branches in the state. New centers will be opening in Shelton, Bridgeport, Danbury and New Britain this year, creating additional jobs for area residents. Approximately 50 AFC locations in the Northeast U.S. make it the largest urgent care chain in the region.
