In partnership with Scranton School District, The Wright Center has brought healthcare directly to students through the School-Based Health Center model since 2015. Though new to Northeastern Pennsylvania, the School-Based Health Center concept is well established and has been proven to help both students and the community perform at their best. The Wright Center and the Scranton School District are proud to come Together in Health to foster healthy habits that will last a lifetime. Currently, The Wright Center’s School-Based Health Centers are housed within three of Scranton’s intermediate schools – Northeast, South, and West Intermediate.
Thanks to the support of the Moses Taylor Foundation, The Wright Center’s School-Based Health Center at West Scranton Intermediate underwent major renovations this summer, including separate entrances for students and members of the community, who can now also access healthcare on the West Scranton Intermediate School campus. At this time, the School-Based Health Centers at Northeast and South Intermediate Schools are open solely to students.
We believe that accessing high-quality healthcare is not a privilege.
Our West Scranton clinic at 1401 Fellows Street is open to the community 5 days a week
