The Children's Hospital of Philadelphia recognized as leader in LGBT healthcare equality

The Human Rights Campaign Foundation designated the Children's Hospital of Philadelphia one of 427 LGBT Healthcare Equality Leaders nationwide, according to a statement. CHOP was the only children's hospital in Philadelphia to earn the title.

CHOP offers assessment, medical and psychosocial support for gender-variant, gender-nonconforming and transgender youth and their families through its Gender & Sexuality Development Clinic, which opened in January.

CHOP also excelled in non-discrimination and training measures for providing inclusive lesbian, gay, bisexual and transgender care, according to the statement.

The Human Rights Campaign Foundation, the educational division of the Human Rights Campaign, an LGBT civil rights organization, chooses leaders based on results from an annual survey, the Healthcare Equality Index. To be recognized, healthcare facilities must provide LGBT health education for staff, allow equal visitation rights for same-sex partners and parents, and establish nondiscrimination policies specific to sexual orientation and gender identity, according to the statement.
