PASCO, WA – Planned Parenthood of Greater Washington and North Idaho (PPGWNI) is pleased to announce the Grand Opening of their new Pasco Health Center, located at 3901 W. Court Street.

“Planned Parenthood has been part of the Tri-Cities community for over twenty years, having operated health centers in all three cities. Our former Pasco Health Center operated on 20th Ave. until 1991, when all operations in Tri-Cities were consolidated to our present-day Kennewick location,” said Anna Franks, President and CEO of PPGWNI. “We are proud to expand our quality reproductive health services to Pasco, and we are pleased to open this beautiful new site.”

Since 1991, Planned Parenthood’s only Health Center in the Tri-Cities was in Kennewick.  In order to better meet the needs of patients in the Benton/Franklin region, the decision was made to purchase and remodel a building in Pasco.  In addition to being a medical clinic, the new Pasco Health Center houses PPGWNI’s Call Center and Medical Billing Office, and a conference space for educational trainings.  For ease of access, the Health Center is conveniently located on the corner of Court Street and Road 40 in Pasco. This location provides direct access to Highway 395 as well as bus access for those patients who are unable to drive and for whom the bus trip to Kennewick is burdensome. 

A Grand Opening Celebration is being held this evening from 5:30pm until 7:00pm.  Staff began seeing patients for limited appointment types the first week of September.
