Health Care Equality
9 years running
The Human Rights Campaign Foundation has recognized Kaiser Permanente’s commitment to lesbian, gay, bisexual, transgender and queer people in its 2018 “Healthcare Equality Index.”
The index is a national benchmarking tool that evaluates the policies and practices related to the equity and inclusion of LGBTQ patients, visitors and employees in health care facilities. The 2018 index evaluated more than 1,600 care facilities nationwide.
We have participated in the index since 2008, consistently moving up in its rankings and achieving a perfect score in 2010 — and every year since.
