About the Newly Renovated E. 7th Street Health Center!
To meet Austin’s growing healthcare needs, Planned Parenthood made the commitment to serve the next generation of patients by investing private donations to renovate the Downtown Austin Health Center on the southwest corner of East 7th Street and Chicon. While minor repairs, have been performed over the years, this renovation was the first major improvement to the health center in more than 15 years. With local Austin architect, Carter Design Associates, the upgrades enhance the patient experience and reflect Planned Parenthood’s continued commitment to the Austin community.
