In support of the patients and communities we serve, Cleveland Clinic will offer Saturday clinics dedicated to providing contraceptive options for patients. This initiative is a proactive effort to increase access and remove barriers to contraception. Cleveland Clinic is committed to the health and well-being of its communities and continues to support women and reproductive health.     

“Reproductive healthcare decisions are best made between a patient and their healthcare provider,” said Tristi Muir, M.D., chair of the Obstetrics, Gynecology & Women’s Health Institute at Cleveland Clinic. “It is critical that women and men have immediate access to contraception. As we have seen an increase in the number of vasectomies across the country in the last month, we are working to increase immediate access for women by opening clinics on Saturdays focused on providing contraception.”

Cleveland Clinic contraception clinics will be open from 8am to 12pm on Saturdays, starting July 23. Initial locations are: 

  • Avon Pointe Medical Outpatient Center 
  • Beachwood Family Health and Surgery Center 
  • Brunswick Family Health Center 
  • Lakewood Medical Building
  • Main Campus 
  • Stephanie Tubbs Jones Health Center 
  • Willoughby Hills Family Health Center 

A complete list of locations and hours is available at https://cle.clinic/contraception.      

At this time, these clinics are available for women ages 14 and older and appointments are required. Individuals interested in scheduling an appointment can call 216-444-6601.  

Information about contraceptive or birth control options is posted in the Cleveland Clinic Health Library.  Details about vasectomies are also available.
