Birth control, breast and cervical cancer screenings, STI testing and other healthcare services available

Lubbock, TX – Today, Planned Parenthood of Greater Texas announced the opening of its new Lubbock health center.

“Planned Parenthood is delighted to return to Lubbock with our brand-new health center and provide trusted, affordable healthcare services,” said Ken Lambrecht, President and CEO of Planned Parenthood of Greater Texas. “Our goal in Lubbock is to contribute to the healthcare network by providing essential healthcare services. We’re proud to be part of Lubbock’s friendly, diverse community.”

“Everyone deserves a life that is healthy, happy, and free from shame and stigma,” said Angela Martinez, Manager of the Lubbock health center. “All are welcome in our health center and we look forward to being a healthcare resource for the Lubbock community.”

“I represent the one-in-five women who have relied upon Planned Parenthood for my health care needs,” said Kimberleigh Gonzalez Williams, a Lubbock mom and healthcare professional. “Sex education and health care options should be accessible and affordable to all bodies, and Planned Parenthood helps bring this reality to our community.”

The Planned Parenthood Lubbock health center is open for in-person and telemedicine healthcare appointments same-day and next-day for patients seeking the following healthcare services:

  • breast and cervical cancer screenings
  • full range of birth control methods (including IUDs and implants)
  • testing and treatment for STIs
  • HIV tests
  • PrEP and PEP medication to prevent HIV transmission
  • treatment for urinary tract and vaginal infections
  • annual well checks
  • HPV vaccines, flu vaccines, and other essential healthcare services

Medication and surgical abortion services will be provided at a later point during the year ahead.

All are welcome at Planned Parenthood regardless of insurance or documentation status, income level, where they live or who they love. Planned Parenthood is proud to be a trusted resource for LGBTQ patients.

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.

Texas has the highest percentage of uninsured residents of any state according to the Texas Medical Association and 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. Lubbock County’s uninsured adult rate was 11 percent above the national average according to the 2019 Community Health Needs Assessment.

For the past three years, a priority for Planned Parenthood of Greater Texas has been to expand healthcare services in West Texas to increase access to affordable healthcare. In late 2019, Planned Parenthood expanded access to telemedicine across West Texas via the Planned Parenthood Direct app.
