LGBTQ Patient Care components:
The LGBTQ patient-centered medical home resides in the Center for Family Medicine and is designed to be a place for members of the LGBTQ community to receive compassionate and culturally responsive primary care that is tailored to their individual needs. The LGBTQ Alliance was established in 2017 with the mission to promote equality and visibility for gender and sexual minorities at Prisma Health. The LGBTQ Alliance has three priority areas:
According to the National Transgender Discrimination Survey, transgender people report a lack of provider knowledge on transgender care and negative experiences with healthcare. Fifty percent of survey respondents reported having to teach their medical providers about transgender care.
Providers in Prisma Health LGBTQ Patient Care Collaborative have received specialized training on various clinical considerations associated with transgender health care. In addition, transgender individuals seeking Hormone Replacement Therapy (HRT) may inquire about receiving treatment in a primary care setting within Prisma Health LGBTQ patient-centered medical home.
Every patient has the right to competent, considerate and respectful care in a safe setting that fosters the patient’s comfort and dignity and is free from all forms of abuse and harassment. It is the policy of Prisma Health not to engage in discrimination on the basis of race, color, national origin, religion, age, sex, physical, mental or other disability, medical condition, sexual orientation, gender identity, gender expression, pregnancy, ancestry, marital status, citizenship, status as a veteran, or other non-medically relevant factors.
