‘Planned Parenthood Expands Transgender Health Services’

At Planned Parenthood Columbia Willamette, we believe that all people deserve the highest quality of affordable, nonjudgmental health care no matter who they are and where they live — no matter what — and that’s what we provide each and every day. Our doors are open to everyone regardless of their race, income, geography, citizenship status or gender identity.

Across Oregon and Southwest Washington, people come to us because they know they will be cared for compassionately and confidentially. We replace fear with facts, and misinformation with education.

We know that transgender and gender-nonconforming people face barriers and challenges when accessing health care in a safe environment. That’s why we’re thrilled to announce that PPCW now offers transgender hormone provision for people 18 and older, in addition to the preventive care we’ve always offered.

Hormone provision appointments initially will be offered at our Northeast Portland Health Center, with hopes of future expansion to our other health centers in Milwaukie-Oak Grove, Beaverton, Salem, Bend and Vancouver, Wash.
