Since its October 2020 opening, American Family Care Urgent Care (AFC) Willowbrook has quickly become the go-to site for COVID-19 rapid testing in the Western Suburbs, and now vaccinations too. However, AFC Willowbrook’s COVID-19 services and responses are only the tip of the iceberg for this state-of-the-art urgent care center.
The first American Family Care Urgent Care facility in Illinois, AFC Willowbrook is an affordable and convenient local option to health care. It is one of more than 200 urgent care facilities in the franchise offering a variety of patient services. From stitches and primary care to many of the same services available at the hospital or an emergency room, AFC Willowbrook offers care without the long wait times or inconvenience of having to get a doctor’s referral. AFC Willowbrook’s mission is to bring affordable and convenient health care to the communities it serves, where patient accessibility and comfort are key.
More than just an emergency urgent care facility, AFC Willowbrook also offers primary care for all ages, making it a great nearby option for doctor’s appointments and medical care for the entire family. More recently, AFC Willowbrook has added occupational care services which employers can offer their employees as an added benefit.
As a result of the global pandemic, AFC Willowbrook has recently perfected its online appointment registration and check-in, making appointment scheduling more patient friendly while limiting exposure to illnesses. Whether scheduling an appointment for a rapid COVID-19 test or a general physical, AFC Willowbrook’s innovative online platform has its patients’ convenience and safety in mind.
Walk-in appointments are always welcome as well, whether for an eye exam, x-ray, or more comprehensive blood work, appointments are not necessary at AFC Willowbrook. Although the provider’s newly perfected website provides the option to book online, appointments can fill up quickly, but AFC Willowbrook still encourages patients to walk in for a same-day treatment even if they do not see immediate availability online.
As far as safety protocols go, after opening their doors midglobal pandemic, AFC Willowbrook has their patient safety procedures down to a near science. First and foremost, there is a mask mandate at the location for patients and medical professionals alike, with AFC Willowbrook employees double masking as an extra precaution and courtesy to patients. There is a short patient screening process before appointments, to make sure patients aren’t currently experiencing COVID-19 symptoms or have been in contact with someone who recently tested positive for the virus.
Each appointment is spaced out so that each patient care room can be thoroughly sanitized and to also allow for air recirculation in between appointments. Additionally, a professional cleaning company comes in after hours to do a deep clean of the facility, so that each day, every inch of AFC Willowbrook is professionally and newly sanitized and ready to receive patients.
AFC Willowbrook truly puts patients at the center of their practice and strives to give every patient, no matter their age or reason for visiting, the very highest level of care possible, and all at the patient’s convenience. With quality, accessible care close to home, what more could you ask for?
