A new urgent care center will open in the former Dave Phillips Sound & Music store at 622 Union Boulevard in Allentown in May. 

Almost a year after buying the property, Thomas Walker, CEO of Action Project Management, secured a Small Business Administration (SBA) loan to convert the first floor of the building into American Family Care (AFC) Urgent Care Center, which he said will be the first of its kind on the city’s Eastside. It is scheduled to open May 18. 

Jeff Barber of Lehigh Financial Group, LLC, arranged the SBA loan that Walker will use to renovate the space and open the urgent care center. The loan closed mid-February. 

Barber also helped Walker obtain the financing to buy the 17,000-square-foot building for $1.4 million in March 2022. Action Project Management has since moved its offices to the second floor of the building and uses the property’s warehouse space for its retail projects. 

Walker, who was a missionary in Brazil for many years, said he chose to open an AFC Urgent Center because he is very interested in serving the community. The COVID pandemic has made everyone “health care minded,” he said, “and this will be an asset to the community.” 

The Urgent Center will fill about 80% of the space on the first floor of the building. Walker plans to have medical offices fill the remainder. 

Based in Birmingham, Alabama, AFC has urgent care centers nationwide. AFC said its clinics provide immediate medical care at a fraction of the cost of an emergency room. 

Walker was represented by Loren Speziale of Gross McGinley, LLC.
