Webb named CMO at AFC Urgent Care
For the Review, Tidings
Dr. Charles Webb has joined AFC Urgent Care Portland, formerly AFC Doctors Express, as its Chief Medical Officer (CMO) effective July 1. The addition of Webb, a former faculty member at Oregon Health & Science University, completed a newly designed management structure intended to guide the organization through a multi-year growth stage.
Dr. Webb not only brings a wealth of medical knowledge and expertise, his experience and reputation in building clinical teams will be a key capability as we scale up the organization to change the landscape in urgent care, accessible primary care, and occupational health in Oregon, and beyond, said Guru Sankar, AFC Portlands managing partner.
Webb is a family physician with subspecialty expertise in sports medicine. He is a member of the American Medical Society of Sports Medicine as well as the American Osteopathic Academy of Sports Medicine. He is also a Fellow of the American Academy of Family Medicine.
Webb obtained his medical degree from the University of North Texas and his sports medicine specialty training while in the Army at the Uniformed Services University. Most recently, he exercised his passion for training as the Primary Care Sports Medicine Fellowship Director at OHSU, and Webb has served as team physician for Portland State University Athletics for the past nine years. He also is a team physician for Lewis & Clark College.
In his new role, Webb will work closely with the leadership team of AFC Portland in growing and developing the clinical staff, consisting almost entirely of physicians and certified medical assistants. He will also be focused on taking clinical excellence and customer service to the next level.
While AFC Portland already shares a commitment to excellent patient care, for me, its never been only about teaching faculty or physicians, he said. It is also about educating patients. Its part of AFC Portlands values and how they intend to raise the bar on urgent care and accessible primary care in the region.
The Lake Oswego AFC Portland clinic is located at 17437 Boones Ferry Road. A Beaverton office will open July 1, bringing the total to four clinics in the Portland area. Several more are expected to open by the end of the year.
