Adagio Health professionals are kind and understanding. They are non-judgemental. They have helped so many women who would otherwise forgo pap smears, breast exams and mammograms because of the cost. I was a patient there, first in 1979, before I was employed there. I have continued to get my exams there, ever since. I am a nurse practitioner with commercial health insurance...and I choose Adagio Health.

Before I was employed by Adagio Health, 31 years ago, I was first a patient here, and still am. I am a Nurse Practitioner in women's health and am proud to be a part of the Adagio Health team. I know from my experience as a patient and a provider of womens' health care at Adagio Health, that we are committed to our clients, and our mission. At our office, in addition to providing ob-gyn services we are an integral part of our town. For the past two years we have gathered several hundred formal dresses, that our daughters, their friends and others have donated. We sponsored events before prom and homecoming, during which girls could choose a dress for free, while at the same time receive information about our services.

As an employee and a client

If I had to make changes to this organization, I would...

try to get more funding, so more women and girls could be served.

Adagio Health has made it a point to see that I get Mammogram screenings that I need. I found a lump on my breast this month and I was scared, however they got me in for screening and it was a fluid lump that should go away. Now all I need is information on how to help it go away. I feel better knowing that it is just fluid but I have not been able to find anything on this particular problem. All staff of Adagio are great people and they far exceed their job expectations. Thank you.

I can’t say enough about the myriad of services Adagio Health offers in the greater Pittsburgh area and throughout Western PA via their satellite offices. Whether insured or uninsured, Adagio Health provides high-quality health care to women and their families. Adagio also offers educational programs in the schools and the communities. As someone who resides in northwestern, PA, it’s reassuring to know that their excellent services are available in rural areas. Bottom line, Adagio Health is a tremendous asset to our region.

I am proud to be a board member of this wonderful agency. What convinced me to accept a position on the board was the fact that Adagio Health provides essential health care to underinsured and uninsured women. It also provides breast and cervical cancer screening, nutrition education, community education and transitional housing for homeless women and their young children. Within the Community Education Department is the Center for Adolescent Pregnancy Prevention whose goal is to reduce pregnancy, STDs and HIV among adolescents in western PA. I am constantly impressed with the staff's professionalism, knowledge and dedication to the agency's mission.

There are so many worthy causes, so many groups with critical needs facing shrinking resources, that it is difficult to decide where to donate limited time and money. My choice was simple upon learning of Adagio's broad spectrum of programs serving the ever-increasing ranks of uninsured and underinsured women and families. What distinguishes Adagio, beyond the immediate benefits of providing meaningful access to health care, are the long-term and lasting benefits that Adagio’s programs deliver to so many, including nutritional, preventive and educational services, residential and support programs, research and advocacy. Donations to further the mission of Adagio Health have far-reaching and significant impacts throughout Western Pennsylvania.

Review from The Pittsburgh Foundation
Rating: 5 stars  

Adagio Health delivers an extensive array of services to women in a broad demographic and serves women without discrimination of race, sex, disability, sexual orientation , finances or ability to pay. They provide a high quality of care and promote education and awareness when other health providers don't. The impact in this community is enormous and measurable. In this age of political pushback and economic concerns, this agency is on the cutting edge and doing the right thing. Board Members and Volunteers are a diverse group of individuals and represent the most progressive, forward thinking approach to health care delivery for women.

As an employee of Adagio Health since 1978 in a variety of roles including finance, program, and administration, I have always been impressed with the enthusiasm evidenced by both board and staff members as they strive to further our mission. All of our programs help enable people to live healthier lives and to understand how they can play a key role in maintaining or achieving better health for themselves, their families, and their communities. Reproductive health services, nutrition services, cancer screening services, and preventive health education services define the breadth of our program efforts. By stewarding federal and state support in conjunction with client fees, insurance reimbursments, and foundation support, we have been able to assure that our services are available regardless of a person's ability to pay. By collaborating with hospitals, community health centers, and other nonprofit providers, to deliver care, we have been able to make these services accessible throughout western Pennsylvania. Support from donors helps to assure that these services will remain available and accessible to persons seeking these services, regardless of their ability to pay. And support from donors helps to illustrate acceptance for these important services, especially in times when reproductive health services are under attack from those wishing to capitalize politically.

I've personally experienced the results of this organization in...

my role as the President/CEO, and from hearing stories of how our clients have benefitted through their letters and personal testimonials.

What is unique about this organization?

It is both a direct service provider and a regional management entity, a prime contractor with the federal and state governments, and a clearinghouse for claim submissions to funding sources for providers in our network.

As we hear rants from public figures attempting to agitate the populace against women and their access to specific health needs, Adagio Health has--for 42 years!-- quietly and compassionately gone about its unwavering mission to provide critical services for tens of thousands of women and their families in Western Pennsylvania. Women who might otherwise be without quality comprehensive healthcare, including: obstetrics and gynecology, breast and cervical cancer screening, STD testing and treatment, nutrition counseling, teen pregnancy prevention, HIV prevention, sexuality education for teens, community education, parent education. Adagio Health makes an enormous, yet generally under-appreciated, impact on so many throughout our region. Rather than seek flashy headlines or engage in self-serving publicity stunts, they focus--every day--on the demanding and important work at hand. Their motivation is simple--to provide excellent care for women who need it--period. As a physician living in Pittsburgh for over two decades, I was among the many who simply had not heard of Adagio Health--until recently when invited to participate on an Adagio medical oversight committee, and then, subsequently, to join the Adagio Board. I felt two responses: (1) shame on me for taking so long to appreciate this amazing organization, its dedicated staff, and phenomenal impact on women's health; and (2) what an honor it was to be invited to work with such committed people to further improve and extend the impact of Adagio Health. Hopefully, more and more people will begin to appreciate and support the "jewel" that we are blessed to have in our region. While politicians and zealots roil in competition for limelight, it is gratifying to know that there exist organizations like Adagio that rise above such trivial behaviors and, instead, "do good" for so many deserving people "without discrimination on the basis of race, disability, sexual orientation, financial ability, religion, age, sex, or marital status". Everyone should be proud to encourage Adagio to "keep up the great work"!

work to increase the recognition of the service of and financial support for Adagio Health services,
