Through a partnership with Children’s Service Center, a well-established behavioral healthcare organization, The Wright Center for Primary Care Wilkes-Barre 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.
The clinic is conveniently located at 335 S. Franklin Street, Wilkes-Barre, on the second floor of Children’s Service Center’s newly renovated Outpatient Clinic Building. Our team of doctors, physician assistants and administrative team members are passionate about providing comprehensive, high-quality, accessible healthcare services to all who work and play within the greater Wilkes-Barre area.
New patients are always welcome, and visitors wishing to be seen at The Wright Center for Primary Care Wilkes-Barre do not need to receive services from Children’s Service Center. Clients of Children’s Service Center can choose any approved provider for their healthcare.
We are a learning organization and patients will see a resident physician when they visit The Wright Center for Primary Care Wilkes-Barre. A resident physician holds a medical degree and works under the supervision of an attending physician. The patient’s interaction with the residents will help develop them to become the best doctors possible.
We welcome new patients of all ages and accept all insurance plans, including Medical Assistance, Highmark Blue Cross Blue Shield, CHIP, Medicare and more. We operate as a safety-net provider of care, focused on delivering right-venue, high-quality, affordable health services to all regardless of insurance status. If a patient does not have health insurance and is not eligible for Medical Assistance, they may qualify for our sliding fee scale. Our team is here to help our patients find the best option for their individual situations.
