“Every day in our waiting rooms I witness the value of having a patient-centered health care home,” said Beth Wrobel, CEO of HealthLinc. “When people have a place to go for regular care, they use it and stay healthier. We provide a range of services onsite – medical, dental, and behavioral health. Our patients not only get the care they need under one roof, but they are treated as individuals, with dignity and respect. This is what health care should be, and what we celebrate during National Health Center Week.”
