Programs and results

What we aim to solve

SOURCE: Self-reported by organization

Family Planning of South Central New York serves a majority rural population, who experience limited access to resources and supports, including transportation, childcare, and broadband internet. The majority of the region is insured, however, many report high premiums, copays, and deductibles, meaning that the cost of care remains a significant barrier. Patients are often high risk with low incomes, as 70% have incomes at or below 150% of the federal poverty level. Many patients have difficulty navigating the complex healthcare environment because of low health literacy or need for language translation.

Charting impact

Four powerful questions that require reflection about what really matters - results.

In the next three years, Family Planning of South Central New York expects to see 22,000 patients in more than 36,000 visits, including 3,300 pap smears, 15,000 STI tests, and 10,000 individuals on a method of birth control. The organization also expects to provide comprehensive sexual health education to 16,000 adolescents.

Ultimately, the medical care and educational services provided by Family Planning of South Central New York are important for not only physical well being, but to promote healthy relationships, access accurate information, and to make decisions about when, or whether, to consider having children. The value of investing in reproductive medical care and education includes direct medical benefits such as preventing unintended pregnancies, preventing, diagnosing, and treating STIs, as well as economic and social benefits, such as the reduction of poverty and inequality. Individuals who are given the tools, resources, and information to plan the timing and spacing of their children are more likely than others to stay in school, increase employment opportunities, and fully participate in their community.

At the very core of the organization’s mission is to provide care for all, regardless of income, insurance, or immigration status. Patients are offered a sliding fee scale for services and are not turned away if they are unable to pay. Its medical centers are open flexible hours with same day appointments, and, if needed, patients are provided transportation through a bus pass, gas card, or physical ride.

The organization, in service of its mission, also provides medically accurate, age appropriate, and evidence based comprehensive sexual health education to 5,000 adolescents annually in schools and community organizations across the region. Using informative, interactive, and engaging programs, adolescents build the skills and confidence necessary to communicate, set goals, and engage in healthy relationships.

Family Planning of South Central New York employs 43 well qualified staff, including 8 members of senior leadership, 25 medical staff, 5 education staff, 3 finance staff, and 2 maintenance staff.

Senior leadership includes a Chief Executive Officer and Directors of Human Resources, Finance, Patient Services, Education, Public Communications, IT, and Development. Medical staff includes a board certified gynecologist, 8 full and part time clinicians such as Nurse Practitioners and Physician Assistants, 8 licensed practical nurses, and 8 medical receptionists spread across six medical centers. Education staff includes 5 trained school and community based sexual health educators. Finance staff includes those focused on accounts payable, accounts receivable, billing, inventory, and payroll.

Staff receive ongoing education on many topics, including cultural competency, data protection, LGBTQ+ terminology and care, as well as responding to signs of interpersonal violence, human trafficking, and child abuse. Staff are consistently improving to ensure that the reproductive medical care and sexual health education provided is up to date, flexible, and meets the needs of patients and program participants.

Staff hold key partnerships within the community, including schools and community based organizations, such as opportunities agencies, United Ways, and Pride alliances, as well as work related to specific causes such as anti-poverty, family violence prevention, and refugee resettlement. This ensures that the reproductive medical care and sexual health education provided is well integrated into already existing community networks.

Given our longevity, demonstrated expertise and effective outreach, we are seen as the leader in the community in reproductive health and sexual health education, as well as engaging youth, parents/caregivers, and the community itself. We have a breadth of expertise in this work and a strong reputation for expertise and excellence.

In the last three years, Family Planning of South Central New York saw 21,266 patients in 35,228 visits. 9,664 patients received birth control, including 1,663 (17%) who received a Long-Acting Reversible Contraception (LARCs) such as an IUD or implant that is highly effective at preventing unintended pregnancy. 14,312 STI tests were provided and 727 (5%) were treated. 3,212 patients received pap tests, 307 (10%) were irregular and were referred for additional follow-up. 15,725 adolescents were provided sexual health education in schools and community based organizations. Of those, 90% indicated that they learned a skill to increase healthy decision making and reduce risky behavior.

Reproductive medical care is critical for not only physical wellbeing, but for preventing unintended pregnancies, unhealthy pregnancy spacing, conditions that would be treatable if caught earlier, and the spread of sexually transmitted infections (STIs), including HIV. When individuals have the care they need to prevent unintended pregnancies and STIs, they are more likely to finish secondary education, attend higher education, increase employment opportunities, and fully participate in their communities.

Providing sexual health education in south central New York is vital because it is not state mandated and is up to each school district. Comprehensive, evidence based sexual health education ensures that adolescents are able to reduce their risk for HIV and other STIs, recognize unhealthy relationships, develop strong self esteem, and adopt lifelong attitudes and behaviors that support health and wellbeing.
