Banner Health Complex Family Planning Program now offered in Greeley
Where do women in Northern Colorado go when they experience a complication with difficult intrauterine device (IUD) and other contraceptive insertion and removal, complex contraception counseling, miscarriage management and high-risk or life-threatening pregnancy counseling and management? Until now, they had to travel to Denver.
Beginning this month, Banner Health offers women in Northern Colorado even more advanced care through their Complex Family Planning Program offered at North Colorado Medical Center in Greeley. This sub-specialty of reproductive care is not offered anywhere else in the region.
“Before, we had to transfer patients to Denver for specialized needs, but now we can support complicated cases and challenging situations with care close to home,” the Medical Director of Women’s Services at Banner in Northern Colorado, James Summers, DO, said.
According to Dr. Summers, the needs addressed through a Complex Family Planning Program are unfortunately common so it’s important women in Greeley, Fort Collins, Loveland, and surrounding areas know that Banner can help. And help goes beyond just treating an issue to providing counseling and care before, during, and after treatment as well.
“It’s about what’s good for women,” Summers said. “I think this is a practice that’s going to grow pretty quickly.”
Interested patients can contact the Greeley clinic by calling (970) 810-6353 to ask questions and set up appointments.
