About Adagio Health

Our History

In 2021, Adagio Health will celebrate 50 years of providing health and wellness services and support in western Pennsylvania. In recent years, the organization’s operational footprint has expanded to include seven counties in West Virginia, along with overseeing breast and cervical cancer screening and early detection programs in 62 counties across the state of Pennsylvania. 

Many of the 120,000+ patients and clients receiving services through Adagio Health are women who reside in communities where access to healthcare services is scarce. Often, Adagio Health is their sole health care provider. In 2020, Adagio Health launched a new Mobile Health Care Unit to better meet the needs of underserved populations. While the unit primarily travels to rural counties north and west of Pittsburgh, PA – it is also deployed as needed to urban areas where access to medical services is limited due to a lack of transportation and other resources.

Adagio Health’s services include family planning and reproductive healthcare for women, men and teens; breast and cervical cancer screening; adult preventive care and immunizations; PrEP (pre-exposure protection against HIV); access to nutritious food and dietary counseling; behavioral health services; healthcare referrals; prenatal care; education and breastfeeding support for new moms; tobacco cessation; and education on topics such as healthy relationships and substance abuse.

The services Adagio Health provides are designed to not only support individual patients and clients, but also their families and communities. Studies show a woman with access to quality healthcare and affordable contraception is able, on her own timeline, to complete her education, get and keep a good job, financially support herself and her family and invest in her children’s future.

Adagio Health serves a population of individuals with diverse ethnic and socioeconomic backgrounds. Members of the Amish community are served in Indiana; students from universities are served in Indiana and Edinboro. In Uniontown, we do our best to serve a community in which so many people have numerous unmet needs due to lack of available services. In Erie, we provide a community of Somali women a safe and welcoming place to receive care. Because of Adagio Health, these women—all with different needs, situations and plans for their futures—have access to healthcare.

Adagio Health is able to provide these services through funding from the State and Federal government, local foundation partners, and through partnerships with a variety of community partners and other funders, such as Susan G. Komen Greater Pennsylvania. Adagio Health currently owns and operates eight stationary medical offices and one mobile unit, and provides Title X, XX and V funding to a wide network of health care providers. In addition to medical offices, Adagio Health is the Women, Infant & Children’s Food and Nutrition Service (WIC) service provider in five counties: Armstrong, Beaver, Butler, Indiana, and Lawrence. Adagio Health's nutrition department also delivers Power Up, a SNAP-Ed nutrition education program, in eleven counties in western Pennsylvania.
