Planned Parenthood announces Iowa expansion

Posted: Updated:

Planned Parenthood of the Heartland is opening a health center in downtown Des Moines.
 
Officials say the facility is open Wednesdays and offers general health care services. That includes treatment for colds and the flu, sore throats and ear aches. The facility also provides birth control and testing for sexually transmitted diseases.
 
No appointment is needed before a visit. Spokeswoman Shelby Cloke says abortions will not be performed at the center.
 
The center's opening comes after Planned Parenthood recently announced plans to close two clinics in March. A clinic in Spencer will close and operations at the Fort Madison clinic will be consolidated with other clinics.
 
Planned Parenthood of the Heartland has nearly 30 health centers across Iowa, Nebraska, Arkansas and Oklahoma.
