Lebanon VAMC Earns LGBTQ Healthcare Equality Award

 

For Immediate Release – April 11, 2018

 

LEBANON, Pa. – Lebanon VA Medical Center announced their “LGBTQ Healthcare Equality Top Performer” designation from the Human Rights Campaign Foundation, the educational arm of the nation’s largest lesbian, gay, bisexual, transgender, and queer civil rights organization.

The designation was reported in the 11th edition of the Healthcare Equality Index. A record 626 healthcare facilities actively participated in the HEI 2018 survey. Among the HEI participants, 95 earned a “LGBTQ Healthcare Equality Top Performer” designation.

“With some of our biggest battles still ahead of us, it is crucial that institutions continue to demonstrate that the march toward full equality is not slowing down,” said HRC President Chad Griffin. “The 626 participants in this year’s HEI continue this march in partnership with the LGBTQ community. For the past decade, the HEI has been the roadmap to closing the gap in ensuring equal care to LGBTQ patients and their families, and we urge every healthcare facility to join us in this continuing effort to provide inclusive care to all.”

The 11th edition of the HEI marks the second year that participants were given a score based on how many LGBTQ-inclusive policies and practices they have in place. HEI participants are given scores in four criteria that represent how many policies and best practices from each section they have implemented: foundational elements of LGBTQ patient-centered care, LGBTQ Patient Services and Support, Employee Benefits and Policies, and LGBTQ Patient and Community Engagement. Participants that score between 80 and 95 points earn the status of “2018 LGBTQ Healthcare Equality Top Performer.” Lebanon VA Medical Center scored 95 points each of the past two years.

The Human Rights Campaign Foundation is education arm of America’s largest civil rights organization working to achieve equality for lesbian, gay, bisexual, transgender and queer people. HRC envisions a world where LGBTQ people are embraced as full members of society at home, at work and in every community.

Lebanon VA Medical Center is one of 170 medical centers in the nation with the sole purpose of providing world-class medical care to America’s Veterans. Lebanon VAMC serves a nine county area in South Central Pennsylvania covering Adams, Berks, Cumberland, Dauphin, Lancaster, Lebanon, Perry, Schuylkill and York counties. Lebanon VAMC also currently oversees community clinics located in Camp Hill, Lancaster, Pottsville, Wyomissing, York and Fort Indiantown Gap.
