Multi-Year Ranking Places AFC Among an Elite Group of Fast-Growing Companies

BIRMINGHAM, AL / ACCESSWIRE / August 16, 2023 / American Family Care (AFC), the nation's leading provider of urgent care, accessible primary care, and occupational medicine, is honored to announce its ninth appearance on the distinguished Inc. 5000 list of the country's fastest-growing private companies. With a three-year growth rate of 102%, Birmingham-based AFC is ranked #4,281 on this year's list.

The 2023 list marks the ninth time that AFC has achieved a place on the Inc. 5000. Of the tens of thousands of companies that have applied to the Inc. 5000 over the years, only a fraction have made the list more than once. Since the inception of the annual ranking in 1982, a mere 4% of companies have earned a place on the list five times - and fewer than 1% have made the list nine times.

"Ranking for a ninth time on the Inc. 5000 list is a testament to the dedication of the entire AFC team," says Randy Johansen, CEO of AFC. "Our growth is a reflection of our unwavering commitment to the health of the patients we collectively serve. As we continue to work toward our vision of becoming one of the most admired brands in healthcare, we look forward to continuing our growth and serving even more communities with high-quality, accessible healthcare."

During the past 41 years, AFC has pioneered the concept of urgent care and expanded its footprint to become one of the nation's leading healthcare 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.

The prestigious Inc. 5000 list has become the hallmark of entrepreneurial success and the place where future household names first make their mark. Microsoft, 7-Eleven, Domino's, Patagonia, Planet Fitness, Under Armour, and numerous other well-known brands have been previously honored by the Inc. 5000.
