LGBTQIA+ Clinical Services

As a member of the LGBTQIA+ community, you have unique healthcare needs and concerns. LGBTQIA+ people more commonly report being in either fair or poor health than non-LGBTQIA+ people, according to a Kaiser Family Foundation study. This community also reports higher rates of ongoing health conditions and disability or chronic disease. These findings highlight why it is important to feel the safest possible and empowered to talk to your healthcare professionals openly. The better we know you, the better we can care for you. We also provide continuous training and education in LGBTQIA+ care to our providers and team members. You deserve to feel seen and respected when you visit a Nuvance Health® facility.
