The third of a planned eight American Family Care (AFC) Urgent Care clinics owned by Upstate Healthcare Holdings opened Feb. 16 at 2746 Boiling Springs Road, Boiling Springs.
Upstate Healthcare Holdings is a partnership between Paul Sparks, Reggie Bell, and Kyle Putnam of RealOp Investments, though acting independently from the investment company; AFC franchise owner Tim Groves and his wife, Lisa; and medical director Dr. Jeff Harris.
The group operates additional AFC locations in Easley and Powdersville, and it plans to open two more this spring at 474 Bypass 72NW, Suite B, Greenwood, and 1667 E. Main St., Duncan.
Groves previously owned and operated the current five AFC Urgent Care locations in Greenville County but sold those to Bon Secours St. Francis Health System. Upstate Healthcare Holdings’ future locations will not be in Greenville County, per an agreement with Bon Secours, Groves says.
