ARHC has provided reproductive health care since 1975. The center was first established as an abortion clinic, and through the years we have added gynecological care, prenatal care, contraception services, and STD testing to our offerings. We are licensed by the Pennsylvania Department of Health and the CLIA, and our physicians are board certified and hold unrestricted MD licenses in the state of Pennsylvania. ARHC is accredited by the National Abortion Federation (NAF) and the Abortion Care Network (ACN).
ARHC is committed to delivering fearless healthcare that is imbued with empathy, respect, and nonjudgment. As one of only two abortion clinics in Allegheny County, part of our mission is to destigmatize abortion and provide abortion care to all people seeking it, no matter their situation. You can support this mission by donating to the Western PA Fund for Choice, a local non-profit organization that provides supplemental funding for people who cannot afford their abortions. All proceeds from this fund are used to care for people at Allegheny Reproductive Health Center.
