COLUMBUS, IN. – Today, Planned Parenthood of Indiana and Kentucky (PPINK) announced that as of July 15, the Columbus Health Center has merged with the Seymour Health Center as part of a continued review of health care access to serve as many people as possible in the midst of a shifting health care landscape.
“As we embark upon a new method for delivery of health care at PPINK, it is important we review our physical locations and stay relevant to the needs of the changing community,” said Lynne Bunch, Vice President of Patient Services at PPINK. “The health of our patients and the communities we serve is our number one priority. We are committed to a thoughtful, careful transition process and we will continue to focus on providing the best possible services to the people who rely on us for health care, education, and advocacy.”
The Columbus Health Center is located at 3200 Sycamore Court, and offers a comprehensive range of high-quality reproductive health care, including affordable access to birth control, cancer screenings, emergency contraception, LGBTQ services, sexually transmitted infection (STI) testing and treatment, abortion referrals, as well as sexual health education and information.
PPINK will offer a seamless transition as the current staff will continue to operate the health center and patients will have no lapse in service. The Columbus Health Center will be open five days a week – Monday through Friday.
Merging the Columbus Health Center and the Seymour Health Center is part of a larger plan to expand access to quality health care for the broader community in Indiana.
