Planned Parenthood had struggled with funding recently and had reached the point it was turning away Lubbock area women.
Generation Healthcare took over the assets and liabilities of Planned Parenthood of Lubbock. On Wednesday, Generation held a grand opening.
“We’ve come in and we’ve renovated and remodeled,” said Generation CEO Merinda Condra. “We are open and accepting patients.”
“It’s women’s health care,” Condra said. “We do pap smears, breast exams, STD treatment, birth control and we’re going to move very soon into prenatal care.”
However, Generation does not do abortion procedures and is not affiliated with any abortion provider.
Condra said the clinic accepts the Texas Women’s Health Program benefits, Medicaid, and private insurance.
“We have a full-time benefits person who will help not only with health-care benefits, but any benefit that might be available in this area.”
Condra said that “any benefit” extends to other agencies or organizations in the Lubbock area.
“We want to spread the word that we are open. We are available and we want to help these women in anyway we can.”
The clinic is located at Briercroft Office Park, Building 14. The phone number is 806-795-7123.
