In recent years, large corporate-style health systems St. Luke’s and Saint Alphonsus dominated all aspects of medical care.
But another new upstart plans to enter the urgent care market.
American Family Care will build a new urgent and primary care facility in the former Mattress Firm in Garden City. (Mattress Firm used to have two locations across Glenwood from each other – and closed the one on the west side of the street).
The new ‘AFC’ will include six exam rooms, x-ray facilities, procedure rooms as well as triage and treatment areas.
AFC is a Birmingham, AL-based chain of franchised medical clinics. It provides locations in about a dozen states, including Washington and Oregon. The Garden City location is owned by Bloom Care LLC of Cortez, CO according to the building application.
