Planned Parenthood Announces Million-Dollar Renovation of Toledo Health Center
TOLEDO, OH — In support of its ongoing commitment to Toledo-area patients and the greater Toledo community, as well as its nearly century-long presence in Ohio, Planned Parenthood of Greater Ohio is announcing a million-dollar renovation of its health center located at 1301 Jefferson Ave. in Toledo.
This renovation, conducted entirely by a Toledo-area construction and design firm and made possible through generous support from community members, will completely revitalize the building’s patient exam and treatment spaces, waiting areas, and employee and administrative areas. It will also allow the health center’s staff to better serve patients taking advantage of new telehealth options offered by Planned Parenthood, as well as new services like limited primary care and gender-affirming care.
Statement from Iris E. Harvey, President and CEO of Planned Parenthood of Greater Ohio:
“For 76 years and counting in Toledo, Planned Parenthood has been proud to serve Northwest Ohio through our Toledo health center. This million-dollar investment, intended to transform the patient experience and allow for growth in telemedicine and other new services, is part of our commitment to be a provider of choice for the next 76 years and beyond. No matter what care a patient needs, whether it’s wellness exams, birth control, cancer screenings, STD/STI testing, abortion referrals, or any of the other services we provide, Toledoans can find it at Planned Parenthood.”
Statement from Hilary White, Board Member at Planned Parenthood of Greater Ohio:
“Our local health center provides critical reproductive health care and education to my neighbors in Toledo, and I’m proud to help advance this essential work through my support of this campaign.”
