Dr. Lara Clement, CenterWell Jackson East’s physician, emphasized CenterWell’s focus on whole-person health. “CenterWell’s care model allows me to get to know my patients and build relationships with them,” Clement said. “Our longer appointment times and the care team that wraps services around our patients helps remove barriers to care and helps seniors live healthier, happier lives. We are committed to providing that kind of excellent healthcare here in Jackson.”
