Healthfirst was the April 2023 Community Focus Collection.
This non-profit reproductive health care provider is located in nine counties in Wisconsin. Here in Marathon County, Healthfirst is located in Wausau. In addition to confidential clinical services, Healthfirst also serves women and children through the WIC program (Women and Infants/Children). Their purpose is to improve reproductive and nutritional health within our communities.
Their mission is dedicated to providing quality, confidential reproductive health care, education, and nutrition counseling that is affordable and accessible through direct care and strategic partnerships. Included in their services is screening for sexually transmitted infections and HIV/AIDS testing for men and women. This is made available using a sliding fee scale.
Healthfirst also provides reversible birth control methods. They do not provide abortion services. Healthfirst provides all-options pregnancy education and supports the right of the client to make her own decision based on her situation. Healthfirst does not make abortion referrals. Additionally, they provide preventative health care, including annual exams, testicular exams, pelvic exams, breast exams, labs, HPV vaccines, and overall health education.
Healthfirst is an important service provider to our community. We welcome the opportunity to learn more about them and provide support.
