*As of September 1, 2021, a new Texas abortion restriction law (SB 8) is in effect that limits our ability to provide abortions at our health centers. Visit ppgreatertx.org/SB8 for the latest updates on this law and the current impact to patient services.

Affordable healthcare services: Uninsured patients may be eligible for patient assistance funding for birth control; breast and cervical cancer screenings; STI testing and treatment; and HPV vaccines to prevent certain types of cancer.
We’re proud to be part of Lubbock’s friendly, diverse community.
Trusted for more than 85 years
For the past three years, a priority for Planned Parenthood of Greater Texas has been to expand services in West Texas to increase access to affordable healthcare. Planned Parenthood’s new El Paso health center opened in 2018, followed by expanded access to telemedicine across West Texas via the Planned Parenthood Direct app and telemedicine appointments.
According to the Texas Medical Association, Texas has the highest percentage of uninsured residents of any state. Texans experience significant healthcare disparities that disproportionally impact people with low incomes and people of color. Lubbock and surrounding communities face rates of sexually transmitted infection (STIs) and teen pregnancy that exceed both state and national averages, along with other health outcome challenges. The 2019 Community Health Needs Assessment of Lubbock County notes the uninsured adult rate is 11% above the national average.
