Mission Statement and Philosophy
Since first opening in 1977, we at Atlanta Women’s Center (formerly Atlanta Women’s Medical Center) have shared one common goal: to provide women with confidential, dignified and compassionate abortion and reproductive health care. The choice to terminate a pregnancy is one of the most private and difficult decisions a woman may make. We recognize that no two women are the same and are dedicated to meeting and exceeding the needs of every woman.
- To exceed expectations in women’s health care and set the standard for dignified, confidential reproductive health services
- To treat each woman as a whole person, addressing her physical and emotional needs so that she can make meaningful, informed health care decisions
- To educate our community about the importance of comprehensive reproductive health care in order to increase understanding of the complexity of reproductive health care decisions
