Planned Parenthood Great Plains (PPGP) announced the reopening of its Edmond Health Center in a new, permanent location – 1601 South Boulevard. The health center started taking telehealth appointments last month, and now patients can receive in-person care for family planning, reproductive and sexual health, and primary care needs.

“We are proud to be back serving the Edmond community. The reopening of this newly renovated health center marks PPGP’s long-term commitment to offering high-quality care to Oklahomans,” said Emily Wales, interim president and CEO, PPGP. “Between the Covid-19 pandemic and the crisis in Texas – created by the near-total abortion ban – we have seen a growing urgency for increased access to expert, compassionate sexual and reproductive health care.”

The South Boulevard clinic joins PPGP’s 10 other health centers, all strategically chosen to meet increasing patient needs throughout Oklahoma, Kansas, western Missouri and Arkansas. Now housed in a larger facility than its prior Edmond location, the health center offers services including birth control, STI and HIV testing and treatment, gender-affirming care, emergency contraception (morning-after pill), and pregnancy testing and services. 

Additionally, the Edmond location is part of PPGP’s expanded primary care network that offers patients – both insured and uninsured – services such as treatments for sinus or ear infections, seasonal allergies or illnesses, and gastrointestinal issues.   

While the health center will not provide abortion care, staff offer information and referrals for patients seeking abortion services. 

The reopening also expands PPGP’s overall capacity to offer family planning care in response to increased demand from patients traveling to its nearby Oklahoma City Health Center for abortion care. Since a six-week abortion ban took effect in Texas on September 1, 2021, PPGP’s Oklahoma health centers have seen a significant increase in Texans seeking care. 

“The reopening of our Edmond Health Center comes at a crucial time for patients across our region who rely on PPGP for high-quality health care,” said Brie Anderson, vice president of Health Services, PPGP. “Many of the patients we’ve seen fleeing Texas are in crisis, and we’re working to ensure that Oklahomans continue to have access to the full scope of comprehensive care from compassionate, expert providers for many years to come.”

Edmond patients can also access safe, high-quality, affordable health care through PPGP’s telehealth services, which include secure, private video appointments, and birth control on demand through the Planned Parenthood Direct app.

Appointments are now open online and by phone. In addition to the South Boulevard Clinic, PPGP operates other health centers in Oklahoma City (619 NW 23rd St.) and Tulsa (1007 S. Peoria Ave.).
