NEW YORK Planned Parenthood of Greater New York has begun laying off and furloughing employees and will temporarily close a dozen of its health centers, citing a strain on resources posed by the coronavirus pandemic.
The organization which formed in January through the merger of five Planned Parenthood affiliates, including the Mohawk Hudson affiliate in the Capital Region began terminating and furloughing staff on Monday, according to emails obtained by the Times Union. Staff will be reduced by about 28 percent across all departments, either through permanent termination, or through furloughs and reduced hours through June 30.
The temporary closure of health centers will leave some communities, such as Rome and Oneida in Central New York, with no nearby options for sexually transmitted infection (STI) testing or abortion services, according to staff at those centers.
Our concern is that there was no effort to keep offices open, even one or two days per week, in those communities, said one staff member who agreed to speak on condition of anonymity. Those patients have a very hard time traveling, and dont have access to care anywhere else.
Planned Parenthood of Greater New York President and CEO Laura McQuade wrote in a letter to staff Monday that financial modeling showed losses for the affiliate ranging from $20 million to $32 million for the remainder of the year, depending on how long the pandemic lasts and its impact on fundraising.

SOMEONE PLEASE POST “NELSON’S HAHA” AND MAKE ME MORE HAPPY
That works too, thank you :)
Don’t worry, they will make up the shortfall in Volume after the Shelter at Home is over.
A few things will come out of this Shelter at Home BS, Divorces, Pregnancies and Homicides committed by People related to the Victims.
Keep praying! They won’t be open when this is over! The maternity wards will be!
GOOD NEWS! THANKS! C’mon men...THINK...with that BIG HEAD. Thank you.
I imagine COVID spread like wildfire in PP centers. Their very poor hygiene practices and assembly line surgery methods with a constant stream of new patients is a viral nightmare.
I suspect there may be quite a few mass murders in hospitals soon.
Saving thousands in the process. Now the mayor can say that thousands didn’t die; makes the death toll look better.
I noticed that they threw in that people in those areas would have no place to go to be tested for sexually transmitted infections.
I call BS on that. Testing for infections does not require an abortion facility. Any ob/gyn office can do that testing, and I would guess that most family practice offices can do it, too.
Hopefully, most of them won't come back.
Outstanding!! And, to borrow President Trump’s fav word, “INCREDIBLE”
