Memorial Hospital's Community Health Associates LLC in conjunction with Maternal and Family Health Services (MFHS) recently opened Family Planning Services located at Memorial Hospital in Towanda.

The new Family Planning Services provides women and teenagers with a wide range of reproductive health care services, including: birth control, gynecological exams, Pap tests, cervical and breast cancer screening, testing and treatment for sexually transmitted diseases for men and women, pregnancy testing, contraceptive planning, education and referrals.

Patients may be eligible for free or reduced cost women's health services. A sliding fee scale allows Community Health Associates LLC to tailor costs for affordable access to quality care.

Confidential care is provided by Timothy Powell, MD, Board Certified Obstetrician and Gynecologist along with Nikki Jenner, Medical Assistant.

"Family Planning Services offers a resource for women and teens that may not have access to care. Difficult economic times have impacted many families in our area and we are dedicated to providing high quality and confidential reproductive health care to women with limited income or no medical insurance," said Dr. Powell. "Our goal is to provide confidential preventative care to help women and teens stay healthy and plan for strong families."

The new Family Planning Services are available Monday through Friday between 8:30 a.m. - 4:30 p.m. by appointment.
