IFD Members Lead the Way in LGBT Health Care Equality

April 8, 2016

Human Rights Campaign Foundation, a member of the Institute for Diversity in Health Management and the educational arm of the country's largest lesbian, gay, bisexual and transgender civil rights organization, has released its 2016 Healthcare Equality Index (HEI).


The HEI is the national LGBT benchmarking tool that evaluates health care facilities' policies and practices related to the equity and inclusion of their LGBT patients, visitors and employees. The 2016 HEI evaluates a total of 2,061 health care facilities. For more information on the 2016 Leaders in LGBT Healthcare Equality, click here.
