As an integral component of The Wright Center’s patient engagement initiative, the PEC was founded in March of 2016 to support the partnership between patients and their healthcare providers. The PEC is focused on patient education and patient advocacy and was founded on the belief that patients are the number one stakeholders in their healthcare.
The PEC also engages patient volunteers who serve as links not only to current Wright Center patients, but also to those outside of the organization who may be searching for a primary care provider and other healthcare services.
