Upper Hudson Planned Parenthood Opened New Health Center in Troy on Hoosick Street
The Opalka Center for Reproductive Health and Education Opened at 120 Hoosick Street on Tuesday, August 25
The new Troy Health Center is part of a medical arts building located in the former Peebles department store in the Hudson River Commons Plaza. The center houses a reception area and waiting area, eight patient rooms, a recovery room, one wellness counseling office, and a shared teen space and community room. The center is conveniently located with ample parking and on a bus line.
UHPP is committed to providing a place where patients feel valued and respected and to provide the best care, no matter what. The Opalka Center in Troy is one third larger than the former health center allowing us to continue to expand services and be able to meet the needs of our community “We are excited to move to this new location which will be convenient for our patients and provide a safe and confidential experience.” says Chelly Hegan, President/CEO.
This project was partially funded by the prestigious Health Care Transformation Grant from the New York State Department of Health and grant from Consortium of Abortion Providers (CAPS). Most inspiring has been the local community support.
“We are proud to support Upper Hudson Planned Parenthood. We can't emphasize more strongly our belief that good healthcare at all levels increases the quality of life and economic vitality of communities. As Americans, we have been blessed to live in a country that offers some of the best technology, educational opportunities and level of healthcare available in the world. Access to quality health services is a right for all human beings and should not just be an exclusive luxury for people of privilege. The education and counseling programs that Planned Parenthood provides is an important link to building a stronger community and a brighter future for all of us in the Capital Region" says Chet and Karen Opalka
