Official: Planned Parenthood Opening in N. 25th St

First reported by Richmond Free Press:

The former home of Edloe’s Pharmacy and Drs. Frank S. and Harry W. Royal’s medical practices in Church Hill is being transformed into a full-service women’s clinic for the Virginia League for Planned Parenthood. The Planned Parenthood organization purchased the building two years ago and is pouring $5 million into the building at 1122 N. 25th St. to create a modern space, according to Paulette McElwain, VLPP president and chief executive officer. Under construction with an opening date not set, the Church Hill clinic would be VLPP’s fourth in the state and the second in Richmond, she said. The other VLPP clinics are in Hampton and Virginia Beach.

Exactly. All private funds raised by VLPP.

Does anyone know if they will provide prenatal care as part of being full service at this location? May seem an odd question, but we know several neighbors who could benefit from access to affordable prenatal care and I’m not sure if being “full service” will include this. I don’t think it does at at the other Richmond location.

Kelly Weber We used to provide this service at our Hamilton site and worked out an arrangement with the health department to take our prenatal patients actually. We are considering it at this site. We know there is a real need in the community. We need to open and then start working on partnerships with folks for deliveries.

Thanks for the fast reply. Is there a specific person/office at the health department that people can be directed to? And, for instance, would this be who people could go to for ultrasounds and prenatal checkups? Thanks!

They have recently rolled back their program. I can find out more for you about where people who don’t have insurance can go for care right now though. I will send you a message next week.
