All of UW Medicine’s hospitals — UW Medical Center, Harborview Medical Center, Northwest Hospital & Medical Center and Valley Medical Center — earned the designation of Leader in LGBTQ Healthcare Equality in 2017 by the Human Rights Campaign (HRC) Foundation. The HRC is the national LGBTQ (lesbian, gay, bisexual, transgender and queer) benchmarking tool that evaluates healthcare facilities’ policies and practices related to the equity and inclusion of their LGBTQ patients, visitors and employees. With only eight hospitals in Washington receiving this designation, our health system stands out for its commitment to addressing the healthcare needs of all people.
