Tune in Tomorrow for Release of 2012 Healthcare Equality Index
June 18, 2012 by Maureen McCarty, HRC Associate Director of Digital Media
Tomorrow HRC will release the 2012 Healthcare Equality Index at an event featuring U.S. Secretary of Health & Human Services Kathleen Sebelius.
The HEI is a unique and invaluable resource for healthcare facilities seeking to provide equitable, inclusive care to LGBT Americans—and for LGBT Americans seeking healthcare facilities with an explicit commitment to their care.
The yearly report rates respondents on their policies and practices related to LGBT patients and their families, based on four core criteria: patient non-discrimination policies, visitation policies, employment non-discrimination policies and training on LGBT patient-centered care.
This year, the HEI ranked a record-breaking 407 facilities with an unprecedented 57 percent qualifying as Leaders in LGBT Healthcare Equality.
Tune in for the HEI 2012 release, which HRC will livestream from Howard University Hospital starting at 10:00 a.m. EDT.
