Reproductive health services are designed to empower all women, men and teens to take charge of and care for their sexual and reproductive health. By administering care through a network of direct and contract service providers, MFHS Reproductive Health Services serve 31,500 Pennsylvanians annually. Maternal & Family Health Services care is available at hospitals, physician groups, Planned Parenthood affiliates and community health centers like NEPA Community Health Care.
Supported through the National Family Planning Program, also known as Title X of the Public Health Service Act, NEPA Community Health Care’s family planning services have been a critical component of the primary care delivered to male and female patients alike.
NEPA Community Health Care’s WIC Nutrition Program helps pregnant women, new mothers and children up to age five learn about nutrition, make healthy food choices and improve overall health. Research shows that poor nutrition during early childhood increase the chance of anemia, limits memory development and a child’s ability to learn, and adds to health care costs. During this critical period of a child’s development, WIC provides a safe, nurturing environment for education, health care and social service referrals, as well as free access to nutritious foods.
