Steady Growth Helps Rank the Healthcare Leader as one the Nation’s 

Fastest-Growing Companies

American Family Care (AFC), the nation’s leading provider of accessible primary care, urgent care, and occupational medicine, secures a spot on the prestigious Inc. 5000 list of the country’s fastest-growing private companies for the third year in a row and, overall, its eighth time to appear on this list.

Birmingham-based AFC, celebrating its 40th year of caring for American families, is listed at No. 3,064 on the distinguished list, up more than 450 spots from last year. The rank change on the list is attributed to AFC’s impressive 176% growth in the last three years. 


“This prestigious ranking is a testament to the hard work of our entire organization,” said Dr. Bruce Irwin, Founder and CEO of AFC. “When we opened AFC 40 years ago, by listening to the consumer, we sparked a healthcare revolution that continues today. We estimated that we have provided affordable, accessible quality health care for more than 100 million patients across the country — something that wouldn’t be possible without our adherence to our mission statement, our loyal patients, and the hard work and dedication of our partners and employees.”


AFC pioneered the concept of consumer-driven, accessible primary and urgent centers. Each facility features a high-tech, high-touch approach, including digital x-rays, on-site lab testing, state-of-the-art diagnostics, and electronic medical records. Well-trained, compassionate healthcare professionals staff the clinics, resulting in high rates of patient satisfaction.
