|Founded in 1982 by C. Lawrence Decker, M.D., Ambulatory Medical Care, Inc. (AmCare) began operations with the opening of the first Doctors' Urgent Care Office in Springdale, Ohio. After serving as the medical director of a major hospital emergency department in Cincinnati for over ten years, Dr. Decker decided to turn his vision of urgent care into reality. The overwhelming success of the Springdale office clearly demonstrated the need for urgent care facilities in the community. Over the years the Company expanded, with current offices located in 9 communities in the Cincinnati (4), Northern Kentucky, Middletown and Dayton (3) areas.
