UW Medicine named Leader in Healthcare Equality


UW Medicine Hospitals are Leaders in Healthcare Equality

All four UW Medicine hospitals are recognized as 2017 Leaders in LGBTQ Healthcare Equality by the Human Rights Campaign (HRC), the country's largest lesbian, gay, bisexual, transgender and queer (LGBTQ) civil rights organization. The hospitals are also included in the annual Healthcare Equality Index published by the HRC Foundation, the educational arm of the HRC. The Index evaluates inclusive policies and practices related to LGBTQ patients, visitors and employees. 

UW Medicine's four hospitals are: Harborview Medical Center, Northwest Hospital and Medical Center, UW Medical Center and Valley Medical Center.
