Patrick Sallee has been named CEO of Wyandotte Community Health Center.  After an extensive and thorough search lead by the WCHC Executive Search Committee, with support from an outside search firm, Patrick was approved unanimously by the Board of Directors at its January 31, 2017 meeting.  

Patrick brings expertise, experience, leadership and enthusiasm to the role; he will be a tremendous asset to WCHC.
