LGBTQ Services

Leader in healthcare equality

Designated as a leader in Healthcare Equality since 2014 by the Human Rights Campaign. We have met the Core Four criteria for LGBTQ patient centered care and continue to train and improve our services for our LGBTQ community.

Transgender patient care navigator support

Our goal is to ensure all patients experience exceptional patient care with sensitive, competent and supportive healthcare providers and staff. All individuals, including those of non-conforming gender identities, are welcome to contact our Transgender Navigator, Jackie Levin, RN, 360.385.2200 ext. 2235. We use the word “transgender” or “trans” to refer to anyone identifying along or outside of the transgender spectrum.

Whole Person Care

LGBTQ and gender diverse individuals have routine healthcare needs, and may also be at increased risk for certain medical and behavioral health conditions.  Our providers are dedicated to caring for you as an individual.  Behavioral Health services are integrated with primary care teams and work in collaboration with your primary care provider.  Providers utilize evidence based techniques to treat common conditions such as anxiety, depression, PTSD, attention deficit disorder, and substance abuse disorders.

 

Many transgender and gender diverse patients are interested in hormone therapy. Our providers will work with you as an individual to provide the best care options available for hormone treatment. This approach sees gender affirmation as a routine part of your primary care, though may require a referral to a specialist to initiate hormone therapy.

Q Card

A simple and easy to use communication tool designed to empower LGBTQ youth (and adults) to become actively engaged in their health and to support the people who provide their care. These are placed in all of Jefferson Healthcare clinics and staff are trained on their use.

We Are Here

Jefferson Healthcare is dedicated to promoting equitable and inclusive care.  In an effort to support this mission and to educate our hospital staff and healthcare practitioners on LGTBQ+ concerns and healthcare experiences, Jefferson Healthcare commissioned Whale Heart Studio and the Mandala Center for Change to create the training video We Are Here.

Preventative care

Critical to maintaining your health, preventative care may include immunizations, vaccines, screenings, and regular check ups.
