Celebrating a New Health Center in Uptown Minneapolis
By Planned Parenthood Minnesota, North Dakota, South Dakota Action Fund, Inc. | Sept. 8, 2020, 3:52 p.m.
The community asked and Planned Parenthood answered. After several months of planning and building, Planned Parenthood will be opening its highly anticipated new health center to expand and continue providing expert sexual and reproductive health care in Uptown Minneapolis.
This is not just a health center, but a beacon of sexual health and reproductive freedom and autonomy, a permanent structure that says proudly: Planned Parenthood is here for good.
The larger space allows Planned Parenthood to welcome every person who seeks care. Patients can visit 1200 Lagoon Avenue in Minneapolis seven days a week starting September 14, 2020 . This location will help Planned Parenthood ensure everyone has the health care they need by offering the full range of sexual and reproductive health services, including telemedicine abortion. The health center, located in the heart of Uptown, has convenient off-street parking, is walkable and mass-transit accessible. You can get to the Uptown Planned Parenthood health center by several bus lines, including 21, 23, 4, and 6.
This new location will not only be the home of health services in Uptown, but also Planned Parenthood’s clinical research work and education and outreach programs. This includes 16 clinical and social science research studies that are currently running, and educators who serve more than 40,000 young people and adults each year through sex education programs.
To kick off the new facility, we are hosting a free online concert in the health center lobby featuring local artist Maria Isa. Join us for this virtual celebration on September 23, 2020 from 6 p.m. to 7 p.m. This event is free and no RSVP is required to attend!
This new health center reflects Planned Parenthood's commitment and effort to provide the highest quality care that every person deserves. Whether you turn to Planned Parenthood for an appointment, or join us in virtual celebration, we hope to see you soon.Book your appointment now
