Hospital Earns LGBTQ Leader Honor

Duke Raleigh Hospital has again been named “Leader in LGBTQ Health Care Equality,” in the recent national Healthcare Equality Index. The honor is given by the Human Rights Campaign Foundation, the educational arm of the nation’s largest lesbian, gay, bisexual, transgender and queer (LGBTQ) civil rights organization.

The designation is based on a hospital’s attention to LGBTQ-specific patient and community engagement, employee benefits and policies, staff training, and patient services.

The designation was reported in the 12th edition of the Healthcare Equality Index . A record 680 health care facilities actively participated in the HEI 2019 survey, with 406 earning the top score “Leader in LGBTQ Health Care Equality” honor.

Duke Raleigh Hospital has held the Health Equity Index designation for the last five years.
