Rating a top score in the nation, Trillium Health has been recognized by the Human Rights Campaign Foundation as an LGBTQ Health Care Equality Leader.
Nationwide, 680 healthcare institutions took the survey for the 12th annual Healthcare Equality Index (HEI), and Trillium Health was among 406 to garner a top score of 100. Human Rights Campaign scores healthcare facilities on policies and practices dedicated to the equitable treatment and inclusion of their LGBTQ patients, visitors and employees.
“From our founding day, the core of our mission has been to support and innovate for the LBGTQ community, so it’s always gratifying to rate with the top institutions in the country that do this work,” said Andrea DeMeo, president and CEO of Trillium Health. “The number one reason we can celebrate this achievement is that every member of our staff is dedicated to delivering our services in the best ways possible. Our people make it happen, and that’s why we’re successful,” DeMeo stated.
The 12th edition of the HEI assesses participants on four criteria: non-discrimination and staff training, patient services and support, employee benefits and policies, and patient and community.
