LGBTQ+ Practices

  • Hospital visitation policies that grant equal visitation to LGBTQ+ patients and their families.
  • Availability of all gender restrooms in all of our care facilities.
  • Provider and employee training on LGBTQ+ patient-centered care and unconscious bias.
  • Equal benefits for married LGBTQ team members and their partner.
  • An Employee Resource Group (ERG) called PRIDE, which strengthens our health system’s workforce talent through recruitment of LGBTQ employees.

LGBTQ+ Healthcare Equality Leader

Our commitment to supporting the LGBTQ+ community has earned us recognition as an “LGBTQ Healthcare Equality Leader” by the Human Rights Campaign Foundation (HRC).

The HRC designation was awarded based on the Healthcare Equality Index (HEI), the national LGBTQ+ benchmarking tool that evaluates healthcare facilities' policies and practices related to the equity and inclusion of LGBTQ+ patients, visitors and employees.
