More about our Gender Expansive Services

Gender Affirming Primary and Specialty Care, including medical, behavioral and mental health for all ages is available at all West County Health Center primary care sites, Forestville Teen Clinic and Wellness Center. Access to quality, affirming care is a priority for WCHC aligned with our mission to reduce barriers to healthcare and health disparities. If you identify as transgender or gender expansive in any way, please let the scheduler know so we can prioritize scheduling you. We can serve as your primary care provider, or, if you have a primary care provider who is not yet comfortable providing your gender related care, we can serve on a consultative basis as well.

We want to address you correctly; while we will bill under your insurance name and gender, please offer us your name and pronouns used if they are different from your insurance billing information so we can appropriately address and serve you.

To Schedule: call 707-824-9999 and ask to schedule w a gender services provider at the site of your choice.
