Cedars-Sinai Earns Top Score on Hospital Equality Index

Cedars-Sinai achieved a score of 100 on the 2019 Human Rights Campaign Healthcare Equality Index. The score confers on the health center a "Leader in LGBTQ Healthcare Equality" designation.

The Healthcare Equality Index is an annual survey that evaluates medical centers' policies and practices that focus on equitable and inclusive care of lesbian, gay, bisexual, transgender and queer patients and their families. About 680 health institutions participated in the 2019 survey—the group's 12th annual review.

"Cedars-Sinai is working to strengthen our diversity to create an inclusive and engaging environment and to become a leader among the nation's healthcare organizations," said Nicole Mitchell, director of Diversity and Inclusion, HR, at Cedars-Sinai. "Recognitions such as this are important to show our commitment to inclusive care that is sensitive, welcoming and free from discrimination regardless of one’s LGBTQ status."

Cedars-Sinai earned perfect scores in each of the following categories:

  • Patient Non-Discrimination
  • Visitation Non-Discrimination
  • Staff Training
  • Patient Services & Support
  • Employee Benefits & Policies
  • Patient & Community Engagement
  • Responsible Citizenship
