About the Center

The Erie County Department of Health (ECDOH) Family Planning Center provides confidential, non-judgmental, comprehensive, and patient-centered reproductive services regardless of age, gender, race, religious affiliation, sexual orientation and/or disability.

At ECDOH Family Planning Center, we provide education and support to select the most effective and appropriate contraceptive method for you.

We work closely with each patient to ensure healthy and safe reproductive health choices are made. We offer several resources and can help refer you to other health care providers based on your needs.
