Stony Brook Medicine’s mission is to deliver world class compassionate care to all of our patients. We recognize and celebrate the dignity of all persons, by demonstrating genuine, respectful care to enhance the healing process. We foster community, wellness, and an open and inclusive environment for lesbian, gay, bisexual, transgender, queer (LGBTQ*) patients, faculty, trainees, staff, and the larger community. We provide culturally sensitive, collaborative healthcare to address the needs of LGBTQ* individuals. We provide support, education, and advocacy related to sexual orientation and gender identity.
