WHY QUEENS?

  1. Queens is truly named after an actual Queen. Queen Catherine, the wife of King Charles II.
  2. Harry Houdini, the world’s greatest magician is buried there.
  3. The best pianos Steinway Grands are made in Astoria.
  4. Many great musicians come from Queens.
    Simon and Garfunkle, Cindy Lauper, JaRule, 50 Cent, Nas, Nicki Minaj, and Run DMC.
  5. Queens is the most diverse urban area in the world.

Choices Women’s Medical Center moved to its present location in Jamaica Queens NY in 2012. We learned that Queens had the highest documented need for high-quality accessible medical services that enabled women and teens to have healthy pregnancies and births, as well as assistance in planning the families they wanted to have. The need for these services was particularly acute for black women and girls, and we knew CHOICES could provide these needed services.

Since its beginning in 1971, CHOICES’ mission always has been to meet women’s reproductive health needs with compassion and the highest level of medical skill. With our move, we continued our services of full gynecological care and a complete Prenatal Program, in addition to ongoing family planning (birth control) and abortion services to 24 weeks of pregnancy. We have also added a Tele-Health/Tele-Medicine program that was one of the first of its kind.

CHOICES is a mirror of Queens in its diversity of patients and our staff. Since we opened our doors here, we have enabled hundreds of women of all nationalities and backgrounds to have positive pregnancy experiences and give birth to healthy babies. We have enabled thousands more to plan their pregnancies, as well as get routine Gynecological care and Well Woman exams. CHOICES also participates in community meetings, and health fairs at local colleges and leads workshops at education centers and high schools, free of charge as a community service.

Diversity In Our Patients and Our Staff – Everyone Is Welcome Here!

Queens is the most ethnically diverse area in the world.
Our Staff reflects that and assists with translation into many languages, including Spanish, Haitian Creole, Hindi, Urdu, Bengali, Punjabi, Korean, French, and Russian.  Staff members are culturally sensitive to different perspectives and religions, as well as gender identities.
