An American Family Care urgent care center will be coming to Sedalia at the current location of the now closed Historic Eddie's Drive In.

"The project is going to be approximately a 5,000-6,000 square foot building," said Jorge Guevara of Guesa USA Investments. "We received a lot of inquiries for an urgent care facility in Sedalia and have worked on this for a year to year and a half with the help of the city."

The project is not expected to break ground until March 2016 and open in September 2016.

The historic Eddie's Drive In will be demolished, but Guevera is planning to help preserve some of the special items still left from the restaurant.

"The building we looked at to bring into the whole development," said Guevara. "The location is near to the road and is such bad shape the building itself, the roofs, the interior is almost unsalvagable."

Guevara plans to work with historians and museums to preserve and create a monument to honor the Eddie's building and heritage.

In 1982, D. Bruce Irwin, M.D. opened the first American Family Care Medical Clinic (AFC) in Hoover, Alabama. Currently there are over 150 clinics for American Family Medical Clinic in the Southeastern portions of the country in Alabama, Tennessee, Georgia, and Florida. The clinics are designed, equipped and staffed to provide accessible primary care, urgent care, minor emergency treatment, and occupational medicine.
