“We are elated by the community recognition of the role that Planned Parenthood health centers play in helping to support healthy families in Farmington, and are proud to be able to continue serving patients in this community. We cannot begin to express our gratitude to the people of Farmington and their commitment to reproductive health care access in New Mexico. We know how important access to reproductive care is for our rural communities, and today we celebrate being able to keep this health center open, thus ensuring access to care for women, men, and young people in Farmington and the surrounding areas.”
