Naples Pride Center is opening a walk-in health clinic two days a week to support the LGBTQ community.

The clinic will operate every Tuesday and Thursday from 12:00-4:00 p.m at their center, located at 2248 Airport Pulling Rd. S Naples.

Appointments are on a walk-in basis only.

Services include STI prevention, testing and treatment, Hepatitis B and C treatment and testing, as well as HIV testing and treatment (including nPEP and PrEP). Services and treatments are confidential and free regardless of insurance coverage, but patients should bring identification and any insurance to the Center at the time of the visit.

According to Naples Pride, the walk-in clinic provides a safe and private space for the LGBTQ community in the Naples area to get testing and treatment. It is staffed by health providers with the Independent Medical Group (IMG), which provides healthcare services to those in underserved communities.

Naples Pride Center opened its 2,300 sq. ft center in October 2020.

In addition to the clinics, they also offer various support groups, youth groups and game nights for the LGBTQ+ community.

All events can be found at under the “News & Events” section. Naples Pride will also be holding its annual Pride Event on November 20, 2021.
