Family planning program expands walk-in services

2 mins read

FARMINGTON – Western Maine Community Action Health Services, the family planning program of the tri-county area announces the establishment of walk-in services at all four locations. WMCA Health Services now accepts walk-in clients any time they are open at their locations in Farmington, Lewiston, Norway, and Rumford.

“Up until now, clients either needed to make an appointment or walk-in during specific days and times,” said Sara Hayes, WMCA’s Health Services clinical director and nurse practitioner. “We find that many people have very busy, hectic lives and they can’t always plan ahead. We made the decision to accept walk-in clients whenever we’re open because we want to make sure people get the care they need.”


Amanda Hilton and Maggie Cook, of WMCA Health Services in Farmington, staff stand in front of the new banner announcing walk-in services.

The reproductive health specialists and nurse practitioners of WMCA Health Services are experts in sexual health with a combined total of over 50 years experience in family planning and reproductive health care.

WMCA Health Services will continue to offer scheduled appointments for clients who want that option and for some types of visits, but most services are now available on a walk-in basis as well. The program offers a wide range of family planning and reproductive health services including birth control, pregnancy testing, sexually transmitted disease testing and treatment, and routine physical exams. All services are strictly confidential.

WMCA Health Services accepts most private insurances and MaineCare. In addition, the program has a fee discount program for clients who do not have insurance coverage. For more information, call 1-800-587-2991 or visit the nearest WMCA Health Services office. The program is also online at  www.wmca.org
