"We are extremely grateful for CompuGroup Medical's commitment to the success and growth of America's Health Centers."

It is at the core of our business understanding to demonstrate commitment to our relationships and the success of our community health center clients in their own pursuit to provide quality care to the diverse populations they serve."

As part of the Patient Appreciation Day celebrations, Dr. Gary M. Wiltz, Chief Executive Officer of Teche Action Clinic, will hold a press conference at the Clinic's main site in Franklin.
