"Statement from Vicki Cowart, President and CEO of Planned Parenthood of the Rocky Mountains

The Colorado Springs Planned Parenthood health center will once again offer the full range of sexual and reproductive health services beginning on February 15th. The health center will provide services in a portion of the building while construction and repair work continues, and with limited space and schedule.

"On February 15th we will open the doors to serve our community just as we have done for generations. We are in awe of our healing and resilient colleagues in Colorado Springs. They are eager to get back to the mission they so deeply care about and the people they so compassionately care for. We welcome our team and our community back into the space with open arms and full hearts."

The safety of patients and staff is our top priority. Planned Parenthood has in place strong and increased security measures to ensure that this health center - and all of Planned Parenthood buildings - are safe, supportive, welcoming environments for all people to get the high-quality health care and education they need.

"We stand, stronger than ever, for the belief that every person in this community, this country, and around the world deserves access to reproductive health care without fear of harassment or violence. We promised in those first days after the tragedy to repair and reopen in Colorado Springs as soon as possible and we are making good on that promise."

"It will be a few months before this health center returns to full capacity, but we are opening those doors as quickly as we can and with robust security in place because the community has let us know loud and clear that they need us. We are so grateful for how they've rallied to support us in this recovery."

Patients can call 1-800-230-PLAN or go online to www.pprm.org to find the health center hours or make an appointment."
