American Family Care to host Oregon City grand opening
With the opening of an Oregon City facility, there are now five American Family Care clinics throughout the Portland metropolitan area to treat patients seeking urgent care, as well as ongoing regular care.
The 3,386-square-foot clinic at 397 Warner Milne Road will host a grand opening Sept. 10. A ribbon-cutting ceremony will be held from 2-3 p.m.; and a community open house from 3-7 p.m. Mayor Dan Holladay, City Commissioner Denyse McGriff, and and state Reps. Christine Drazan and Mark Meek have confirmed their attendance at the ceremony.
Guru Sankar, managing partner of AFC Portland, said he and his team seek out underserved neighborhoods like Oregon City as part of the company's growth strategy. The projected sales goals this year is an increase of 10 percent, he noted.
"We want to be a community-oriented service, rooted in the local communities we serve," Sankar said. "We focus on our internal team a lot — building a committed and purpose driven team that enjoys being here and working together. Our main differentiator from our competition is customer service."
While they provide urgent care via walk-ins and appointments, the AFC clinics also provide occupational health services for businesses, primary care, on-the-job injuries, and travel and other vaccinations. Its services are covered by most health care plans (excluding large plans like Providence and Kaiser). AFC recently announced that it had become a community partner of the Veterans Health Care Option, a service designed to fill a care gap for local armed services personnel.
Oregon City's AFC clinic was designed by Stewart Gordan Straus Architects and built by Joseph Hughes Construction. It is open from 8 a.m.-8 p.m. weekdays and 8 a.m.-6 p.m. on weekends, with no appointments necessary. Visit AFCUrgentCarePortland.com for more information.
