Family Planning Services at the Health Department

The mission of the family planning program is to prevent unintended pregnancy and improve pregnancy planning and spacing.

Family Planning services include:

  • Physical exam (including a medical history, height/weight, and blood pressure)
  • Family Planning counseling and education--including information on all contraceptive methods and safe sex practices.
  • Pregnancy testing
  • STD and HIV testing
  • Birth Control (such as abstinence, natural family planning, condoms, birth control pills, patch, ring, injections, IUDs, and implants)
  • Pre-conception exams (making yourself as healthy as possibly before getting pregnant)
  • Emergency contraception or the “morning-after pill”

The cost for family planning services are adjusted according to income.

Preventive Health Care Centers


The Preventive Health clinics moved to an appointment-based system on October 1, 2018 to allow us to see individuals in a more timely manner. All patients should call and schedule an appointment for a visit. If you are more than 15 minutes late for your appointment, you will be asked to reschedule. Walk-ins patients are required to sign-in by 2:30 p.m. at all three public health centers. At times, services may need to be limited depending on staffing or demand for services.
