The Pinal County Public Health building at 41600 W. Smith Enke Road has closed temporarily to prepare for additional services for women and children.

The clinic is under renovation to accommodate a Family Advocacy Center, a function taken over from the City of Maricopa in 2021, according to Public Health Director Tascha Spears.

When it reopens in late August or early September, the facility will provide the multi-disciplinary team services previously provided by the City in two locations. Those services include forensic interviews, victim advocacy and medical forensic exams for children and adults with concerns of sexual abuse or assault, and other forms of interpersonal violence, such as domestic violence.

The clinic last provided services March 30.

Clinic clients can continue to receive services in Casa Grande, Coolidge or Eloy during the closure, said James Daniels, communications and marketing director for the county.

Daniels said Women, Infants and Children clients can continue to complete their appointments by phone until October. Clients are encouraged to call the Pinal County Health Central Appointment Desk at 866-960-0633 to schedule any needed services during the closure.

The Maricopa clinic already provides numerous health services for women and children, including childhood immunizations, family planning, birth control supplies/methods, pregnancy testing, STD testing, Well Women HealthCheck Program for cancer screening, nutrition education, breast feeding support, and supplemental foods or food boxes.
