Preterm is open and continuing to provide abortions.
Preterm is complying with the Ohio Department of Health’s order regarding personal protective equipment, which requires hospitals and surgical facilities to stop providing non-essential surgeries and procedures and take other steps to reduce the use of equipment in short supply. Under that order, Preterm can continue providing essential surgeries and procedures, including time-sensitive, essential surgical abortion care. Our doors remain open.
We provided assurance to ODH and the attorney general that Preterm is in compliance with ODH’s order. Preterm’s doors remain open and we are in compliance with all orders and guidance from state leadership.
