Introduction to Planned Parenthood of Greater Ohio
The mission of Planned Parenthood of Greater Ohio (“Planned Parenthood”) is to protect, promote, and provide empowered health care for people throughout Ohio. Planned Parenthood works to create a world where sexual and reproductive rights are basic human rights, where access to health care does not depend upon who you are, and where every person has the opportunity to choose their own path to a healthy and meaningful life.

As an affiliate of the Planned Parenthood Federation of America, Planned Parenthood of Greater Ohio was formed in 2012 following the successful consolidation of Planned Parenthood of Northeast Ohio, Planned Parenthood of Central Ohio, and Planned Parenthood Affiliates of Ohio. Now, Planned Parenthood works for healthy bodies and healthy communities by maintaining 17 health center locations in communities throughout North, East, and Central Ohio.

In 2021, Planned Parenthood of Greater Ohio reached 47,799 patients through more than 77,676 visits.

Planned Parenthood provides essential reproductive health care services to generations of Ohioans. The organization’s caring and knowledgeable staff provide a wide range of services, including testing, treatment, counseling, and referrals. Services include birth control, abortion services, wellness exams, adoption services, cancer screenings, gender-affirming care, HIV testing and counseling, men’s health, and more.

Planned Parenthood’s model of care involves patient-focused information and education. Patients leave with the information and knowledge they need to maintain and protect their health. Planned Parenthood provides a non-judgmental and confidential rapport with patients that makes it easier to address a number of sensitive issues such as behaviors that involve risk and safer alternatives.
