Urgent care clinic opens in Milton

Ala.-based company’s first in Ga.

Posted:

MILTON, Ga. — Milton is the site of the first American Family Care urgent care clinic in north Atlanta, and the first even in the entire state.

Randy Johansen, president of American Family Care, an Alabama-based medical company, said at the official opening of the office Oct. 2 that the company has plans to increase their presence in Georgia – starting with the North Fulton area.

“The future is here in the north Atlanta area,” he said. “We’re looking to be in Atlanta for a long time.”

Another office is being built at the Prado in Sandy Springs, with at least two more coming next year.

“The population appeals to us,” Johansen said, explaining why his company chose Milton. “There are opportunities here and the demographics appeal to us.”

Founder Bruce Irwin put it simply.

“There are more people in Atlanta than all of Alabama,” he said.

AFC began 30 years ago in Hoover, Ala., and has treated over 10 million people since then. While most of their offices are based in Alabama, the company has expanded to Tennessee and now Georgia.

The clinic is designed, equipped and staffed to provide comprehensive urgent care, family care and

occupational medicine without the need for an emergency room.

“We’re making medical care more accessible,” Johansen said.
