January 19, 2010
HOOVER, al –JANUARY 18, 2010 – American Family Care first opened its’ doors in 1982 on Hwy 31 in Hoover, AL and since then has grown into 22 clinics statewide. When deciding on where its’ newest clinic should be located, AFC decided to go back where it all started from, Hoover, AL. The Hoover area has grown a lot over the past 28 years since AFC first opened, and with seeing the success of its original location, it seemed like the perfect place.
American Family Care celebrated its Grand Opening on October 11th and welcomed its’ 22nd clinic at The Grove in Hoover, AL. The Grand Opening was well attended with enthusiastic support from the Hoover Chamber and the surrounding community.
The clinic is located at the new Grove Shopping Center at exit 10, which is home to the largest Target in the US. The new shopping center provides a convenient and key location for the residents of Hoover in an area that is expanding everyday.
The clinic is open 7 days a week, 8:00 am-6:00 pm- with “No Appointment Necessary.”
The facility is designed, equipped, and staffed to provide comprehensive urgent care, family care, minor emergency treatment, and occupational medicine. It also has a high tech, high touch, digital x-ray, onsite lab, and EMR (Electronic Medical Records).
American Family Care is the largest independent provider of healthcare in Alabama and introduced the concept of convenient, quality healthcare to the southeast when it first opened in 1982. The company abides by a patient-first model, as stated here in the AFC mission statement:
“To strive to provide the best healthcare possible, in a kind and caring environment, while respecting the rights of all patients in an economical manner at times and locations convenient to the patient.”
Currently, there are thirteen locations in Birmingham, one in Tuscaloosa, three in Huntsville, two in Montgomery and three in Mobile. Dr. Irwin’s plans are to build several more across the state this year and to branch out into new markets such as the Nashville, TN area.
