AFC earns spot on Inc. 5000 list for 4th time

Posted

BIRMINGHAM, Ala. — For the fourth time, American Family Care (AFC) has earned a spot on the prestigious Inc. 5000 list – an exclusive ranking of the nation’s fastest growing private companies. This year, Birmingham-based AFC ranked #1,020 on the distinguished list, significantly up from its initial ranking of 4,635 in 2013. The latest ranking comes on the heels of the company’s recent announcement that it has secured $1 billion in private equity funding to assist its franchisees in the development of an additional 300 medical centers across the U.S.

With $461.7 million in annual system-wide revenue, AFC recorded a three-year growth rate of 425% – driven by the nation’s need for high-quality, accessible health care. That performance also made AFC the fastest growing health care company on the Inc. 5000 list with more than $400 million in annual revenue. “We are delighted to once again be among the fastest growing companies in the U.S.,” said D. Bruce Irwin, M.D., Founder and CEO of AFC. “I cannot understate the fact that our success is the direct result of the dedication our employees and franchisees have toward delivering compassionate, convenient health care to our patients around the corner and around the nation.”

During the past 35 years, AFC has pioneered the concept of urgent care and expanded its footprint to become one of the nation’s leading health care providers. 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 well-trained, compassionate healthcare professionals, resulting in high rates of patient satisfaction. Most clinics are open daily from at least 8 a.m. to 6 p.m. and no appointments are necessary.

In 1982, Inc. Magazine introduced the Inc. 500 list of the fastest-growing privately held companies in the United States. In 2007, the Inc. 500 list expanded to the Inc. 5000, giving readers a deeper, richer understanding of the entrepreneurial landscape and capturing a broader spectrum of success. This prestigious list of the nation's most successful private companies has become the hallmark of entrepreneurial success and the place where future household names first make their mark. Dominoes, Pandora, 7-Eleven, Toys “R” Us, Zappos.com, Zipcar, and numerous other well-known brands have been honored by the Inc. 5000.
