Highland Earns 'LGBTQ Healthcare Equality Leader' Designation


The Human Rights Campaign (HRC) Foundation, the educational arm of the largest national lesbian, gay, bisexual, transgender and queer civil rights organization, recently recognized Highland Hospital, Strong Memorial Hospital (SMH) and F.F. Thompson Hospital as 2019 national LGBTQ Healthcare Equality Leaders.

Nationwide, 406 health care facilities earned the coveted “leader” status out of 680 that voluntarily took part in the HRC’s survey. Participants were scored based on four criteria: non-discrimination and staff training, patient services and support, employee benefits and policies, and patient and community engagement. The HRC also proactively researched key policies at an additional 1,000 non-participating hospitals.
