While controversy continues for the organization at the national level, Planned Parenthood has announced a plan to expand in Spokane. Planned Parenthood says their plans will replace their current clinic and offices at 123 E. Indiana with a new modern and more efficient building , to be built just east of the their current building on Indiana.
The new building will be financed largely via a capital campaign that has already received some large donations, despite the fact the campaign has not started yet. The building is estimated to cost about $5 million to build and is hoped to open during the last half of 2017. The current Planned Parenthood building will be demolished upon completion of the new building. Below is a look at what the new building is planned to look like:
The new Spokane Planned Parenthood building will offer nine exam rooms , two surgical suites an education center and a community classroom. No word on if this new building will create any new jobs. Planned Parenthood is also investing in re-establishing an office in Pullman following a arson fire destroyed the original office there.
