Patient Navigation Services

What is Patient Navigation?

Are you or someone you know in need of abortion care? We know it can be hard to understand how the recent Arizona abortion restrictions will impact your ability to get the care you need. We also know that many patients now may face the financial burden of taking time off work, finding a hotel, arranging childcare and traveling long distances in order to have an abortion. You don’t have to figure it out on your own. That’s why we have our Patient Navigator Program.

Meet our Patient Navigator, Kischea.

Our Patient Navigator is an RN who is dedicated to helping you access the abortion care you need, including financial assistance. Kischea can answer your questions, provide counseling, help you make an appointment for an abortion and cover the cost of transportation, hotel stays and childcare for patients traveling >60 miles to a health center in Arizona or out of state.   

Call or Text (480) 848-8530 to speak to our Patient Navigator, who is available Monday-Friday, 9:00 AM-5:00 PM.

Care Collaboration for PPAZ Patients

In anticipation of the Supreme Court the Dobb's decision, PPAZ proactively created a network of affiliates willing to work with us to offer abortion care to our patients when and if Roe v. Wade was overturned forcing PPAZ To pause our abortion services. As our patients are our first concern, we want to ensure that if we can no longer provide Abortion Services, we provide them with a warm hand-off to trusted partners who will give them the compassionate, expert care they deserve. So, we have partnered with a few Planned Parenthood Affiliates in surrounding states to ensure one continuum of care for abortion services in states where abortion remains legal.  

Planned Parenthood Pacific Southwest (PPPSW) is one of those affiliates that has offered to provide care for our patients from the moment the Dobbs decision was announced. Their locations are listed below.  Our Patient Navigators can help you coordinate care with PPPSW, or you can contact PPPSW directly.
