Health Equality Index Participant

Stony Brook Medicine is participating in the Human Rights Campaign's (HRC) Healthcare Equality Index. Our goal for 2020 is to be named a "Leader in LGBTQ Healthcare Equality" by the HRC Foundation. HRC is the largest national lesbian, gay, bisexual, transgender and queer civil rights organization. Healthcare Equality Leader status is a competitive designation that requires facilities to met strict criteria in five areas: Non-Discrimination and Staff Training; Patient Services and Support; Employee Benefits and Policies; Patient and Community Engagement; and Responsible Citizenship. Stony Brook gaining this designation would further demonstrate our commitment to provide high quality, equitable care to all patients in Suffolk County.
