Great news for our northern Nevada patients! PPMM has purchased land to build a new, permanent home for a state-of-the-art health center in Reno. Construction will begin soon and is expected to be complete by late 2022.
This new flagship health center will be 8,400 square feet – more than twice the size of our existing site. It will also have increased space for abortion services, at a convenient location near the Reno airport for out-of-state patients who need to come to Nevada to exercise their reproductive rights – especially if the U.S. Supreme Court overturns Roe v. Wade next year or renders it irrelevant.
Nevada has historically struggled with abortion-provider shortages, so having on-site abortion care in Reno will also be a welcome relief for people who have had to travel a long distance to access abortion, whether they’re coming from remote parts of Nevada or across state lines.
We look forward to sharing more updates about this new health center and how you can help along the way.
Services offered at the new center in Reno will include:
- Abortion care (medication and on-site)
- Breast and cervical cancer screening
- Early-pregnancy complications, evaluation, and options education
- Family planning
- Gender affirming care
- HIV testing
- Pregnancy testing and options education
- Permanent contraception
- STI testing and treatment
- Teen services
- Well-person exams
