Princeton Medical Center Recognized for Healthcare Equality

September 3, 2020
Healthcare Equality Leader 2020

For the second year in a row, Penn Medicine Princeton Medical Center was designated an LGBTQ Healthcare Equality Leader by the Human Rights Campaign (HRC) Foundation, the educational arm of America’s largest civil rights organization working to achieve equality for individuals who identify as lesbian, gay, bisexual, transgender or queer.

The designation resulted from HRC’s Healthcare Equality Index, which evaluates healthcare organizations nationwide based on policies and practices dedicated to the equitable treatment of LGBTQ patients, visitors, and employees. PMC earned a top score of 100.

While PMC was the named awardee, Princeton Health’s efforts to promote equitable care and treatment extend throughout the health system, notably at Princeton House Behavioral Health, a regional leader in providing skilled, compassionate care to individuals with behavioral health and substance use issues.

All of Penn Medicine’s hospitals earned the Healthcare Equality Leader designation. Read more
