LGBT Leader in Healthcare Equality
Contra Costa Health Services has participated in the Human Right's Campaign's (HRCs) national equality index and have been designated as a leader in LGBT healthcare. We earned this designation by completing the Core Four Leader Criteria in HRC's national Healthcare Equality Index. The criteria represent policies and practices that are considered foundational to LGBT patient-centered care.
The Core Four Criteria include:
To meet the fourth of the Core Four criteria, healthcare organizations must have key facility employees receive expert training in LGBT patient-centered care. Training programs offer all incoming and current staff the information and skills they need to provide culturally competent care and services to their LGBT patients.
