Holistic care that is compassionate at no-cost
PACN offers no-cost medical care to every woman and man that steps foot inside our doors. Through our holistic approach of compassionate care, each client receives physical, mental and spiritual support. We believe this will empower and encourage our clients to make healthy choices, impacting their lives and the lives of others.
Pregnancy Medical Services
PACN offers free, confidential pregnancy testing and consultations with a trained peer consultant, ultrasound services, educational programs, support groups and material assistance for single parents and families in need.
A woman experiencing an unplanned pregnancy is much more confident about carrying a pregnancy to term when she has support and knows she has a place to turn for reliable, medically-accurate information. PACN does everything possible to help a client from the moment her pregnancy test is positive and through the baby’s first year.
PACN does not provide birth control and we do not refer for or perform abortion services.
Sexually Transmitted Disease (STD) Testing and Sexual Health Education
PACN offers testing for HIV, chlamydia, and gonorrhea. Trained nurses administer no-cost STD and HIV testing for female and male clients where education plays a central role. We believe that through proper education and medically accurate information, our clients can begin making healthy, life-changing choices.
PACN encourages abstinence for our single, unmarried clients because it is the only way to avoid unplanned pregnancy and STDs/HIV 100 percent of the time.
Preventative Well-Woman Care and Mammography Services
Well-woman care and mammography services are the newest addition to PACN’s no-cost medical services. Preventative well-woman care and mammograms are an essential part of a woman’s healthcare-which many cannot qualify for or afford.
Each client benefits from our “whole-woman care” approach through one-on-one time with our nurse practitioner. During the visit, a woman 21 and over can have a Pap smear, manual breast exam and receive extended STD screening.
*By partnering with an outside agency, PACN is also able to offer monthly mammography services for those who qualify.
