Celebrating the Grand Opening of The Gianna Center


from Friends of Fertility Care – Philadelphia 

Barbara Rose


The Gianna Center of Philadelphia is open for business in East Norriton at Suburban Community Hospital, 2701 DeKalb Pike, Medical Arts Pavilion Suite 207.

Over 50 friends, patients and supporters joined Bishop John McIntyre and Montgomery County Commissioner Joe Gale for an office blessing and open house on Friday, April 26.  Anne Nolte, Executive Director of the National Gianna Center in New York City also came down for the day.  The Knights of Columbus Holy Family Council #3327 presented a check for $5,000 they had raised for the Gianna Center at an event in Bridgeport last month.

Exam rooms in the new office have been dedicated to John and Harriet Stanton, and to the Knights of Columbus in recognition of their extraordinary support.    Earlier this spring, regional councils of the Knights generously donated the cost of an ultrasound machine for the Gianna Center through a matching grant program from the Supreme Council’s Culture of Life Fund.  The Stantons are long-time bastions of the Philadelphia pro-Life community whose commitment has extended to the establishment of this center for women’s reproductive health.

The Gianna Center is open 8:00 am to 5:00 pm, Monday through Friday, to provide general gynecologic care, natural family planning education and infertility services that work cooperatively with a woman’s body to restore her natural reproductive health.

The office is led by Dr. Delia Larrauri, MD, FACOG, who is fluent in English and Spanish.  Nurse Practitioner Barbara Rose is a certified FertilityCare Practitioner who has been providing instruction in the Creighton Model FertilityCare System to women and couples in our region since 2004.
