UW Medicine recognized for LGBTQ healthcare leadership

The Human Rights Campaign Foundation has published its annual Healthcare Equity Index and awarded its "2019 LGBTQ Healthcare Equality Leader" designation to UW Medicine's four hospitals. Each UW Medicine hospital received a perfect score of 100 on this year's survey, which assessed participants on four criteria: non-discrimination and staff training, patient services and support, employee benefits and policies, and patient and community engagement.
