HEI 2019 LGBTQ+ Healthcare Equality Leaders

This year, 406 of the 680 HEI 2019 survey respondents (60%) scored 100 in the HEI 2019 and achieved the coveted status of "2019 LGBTQ+ Healthcare Equality Leader." Another 148 facilities earned the “Top Performer” designation for scoring 80 to 95 points. With 81% of participating facilities scoring 80 points or more, it is clear that healthcare facilities are going beyond the basics when it comes to adopting LGBTQ+-inclusive policies and practices.

In addition to being celebrated in the HEI 2019 report, Equality Leaders receive a special logo and a toolkit of resources for outreach to LGBTQ+ residents in their service area.
