Planned Parenthood Keystone (PPKeystone) officially opened its new Susie and John Stanley Health Center at Reading at a ribbon cutting ceremony on November 19, 2020.
"... the Susie and John Stanley Health Center at Reading is poised to improve the region’s overall health and wellness during these challenging times.” said PPKeystone CEO & President, Melissa Reed.
“One thing is for certain: Planned Parenthood Keystone is right here with you. We remain committed to doing whatever we can to take care of our patients. We are not going anywhere."
We are thrilled to partner with WOMEN’S WAY. Their commitment to advancing and protecting reproductive freedom and health care access make them ideal partners as we seek to reassure our patients that abortion care is still safe, legal, and accessible in Pennsylvania.
All of us at Planned Parenthood Keystone are committed to the very values and principles upheld by Justice Ginsburg. We know the fight ahead will be tough – probably the toughest fight we have ever faced.
“Giving young people access to expert educators — during this public health crisis and beyond — helps to ensure that they are equipped with the information they need to protect their health and choose their futures from a safe and trusted resource,” stated Melissa Reed, CEO & President of Planned Parenthood Keystone.
About 1.1 million people are living with HIV and more than 41,000 new infections happen every year. PPKeystone’s new service will be help lower the chances of getting HIV.
Everyone has a right to be safe and healthy. Birth control is critical, time-sensitive medication that treats serious conditions and allows people to plan if and when they get pregnant. It is unconscionable to limit health care when the nation is facing a public health crisis and extreme social unrest.
With sexually transmitted infections already at all-time highs prior to the pandemic, and local public health resources dedicated to education and prevention of sexually-transmitted infections redirected to combat COVID-19, additional resources are required. At-home testing for sexually transmitted infections is a new tool, arriving at a critical time.
