“We live in a world where fast food and pizza are at your fingertips, but good health care is not. It can be difficult to obtain and is not always consumer-friendly or focused on customer service. We want to change that” said co-owner Tom Kelly. The popularity of walk-in urgent care facilities is growing throughout the country and we are seeing the same here in the state of Connecticut, hence the need for a third Danbury location. “
No appointment is needed and everyone walking through the door is immediately greeted by “Disneyland” smiles and welcomed to the facility.
“As a father of four, I have certainly spent a lot of time in urgent care facilities with my kids. I thought that the consumer experience needed improvement, and determined that we could make it exceptional” said Kelly. “We work closely with Danbury hospital, as well as the entire Western CT Medical Group, primary care physicians and specialists, bringing efficiency to the system and improving communication between health care providers” said Kelly.
“We are local guys investing our own money in a medical center to take care of folks in our community,” adds Krippner. “Unlike many private equity investors entering the urgent care space, we are not interested in simply opening and quickly flipping an operation. Rather, we are in it for the long haul – we want AFC Doctors Express to make a positive contribution to our communities and to the future of Connecticut’s healthcare landscape.”
