Hope Pregnancy Center Buys The Former Bryan Planned Parenthood Clinic

Closed in August of 2013, the Planned Parenthood clinic in Bryan has been sold to Hope Pregnancy Center.

The executive director of the faith-based organization, Tracy Frank, says an STD clinic will open in January.

Current services will continue at Hope’s present location in College Station and a $100,000 fundraising campaign has started to finish the purchase and equip the new building.

Frank says Drs. Noreen Johnson and Haywood Robinson of Brazos Medical Associates will be partners as on site medical volunteers.

Also at the new location will be EZLabs, which Frank says is a necessary component for a STD clinic.

Frank says those affiliated with the non-profit center wanted to expand, and once the decision was made to pursue this location, they reached out to local donors who provided the money to acquire the property.

As for selecting a former abortion clinic, Frank says it was an opportunity “to redeem the building and use it in a way that would be life-affirming”, have a “positive impact in the community”, and “tear down the gates and the walls and open the building up.”
