13 years ago Comments Off on Planned Parenthood clinic renovated

Planned Parenthood has been a part of Huntsville since 1974. It was the first branch clinic opened outside of Planned Parenthood of Houston. An open house was held at the Huntsville clinic yesterday to show off its new look to its clients and the community.

The entire clinic was renovated to make it more attractive and better equipped to serve its patrons. Peter J. Durkin, CEO of Planned Parenthood of Houston and Southeast Texas, said, “The Open House is a chance for the community to see our progress if you haven’t, see who we are, and see that we are a major health care provider.” Durkin also said the key of Planned Parenthood was making sure that women have access to adequate health care who are can not afford health insurance or who are not eligible for government programs.

The open house was also a chance for people to become aware and understand what Planned Parenthood does for the community, since many times the organization is overly identified with abortion.

Family planning makes up 85-percent of what the organization services the community. Planned Parenthood provides health services, such as well women exams, sexually transmitted disease testing, family planning services and counseling among many others.

Durkin said they also offer educational programs for the community on health topics. “Healthy women make healthy families, and healthy families make a healthy community,” he added.
