The Wright Center for Community Health and its affiliated entity, The Wright Center for Graduate Medical Education is a non-profit, community-based graduate medical education consortium and safety-net provider of primary care services.
The Wright Center for Community Health clinics in Jermyn, Clarks Summit, Scranton and Wilkes-Barre offer healthcare services for children and adults across Northeastern Pennsylvania. Our clinics follow the Patient-Centered Medical Home (PCMH) model, a delivery structure where treatment is coordinated through a patient’s primary care physician to ensure necessary care is received when and where they need it.
Through a partnership with Children’s Service Center, a well-established behavioral healthcare organization, The Wright Center for Community Health South Franklin Street became our first clinical venture into Luzerne County in January 2018 with a goal of promoting bi-directional integration and increased access to behavioral and physical healthcare services.
