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 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 have worked in women's health for over 30 years. I have experienced and been a partner with many non-profits in Pittsburgh. The staff, services and accessibility of Adagio Health are by far one of the best! Women are welcomed, treated with respect and given high quality healthcare.
