Important Information About Transgender Health Care at Virginia Mason Franciscan Health

At Virginia Mason Franciscan Health our goal is to deliver compassionate, high-quality, and affordable health services to all, including transgender patients and their families, offering a wide range of transgender health care at our inpatient and outpatient facilities. Guided by robust policies), Virginia Mason Franciscan Health prohibits discrimination on the basis of gender identity and expression, and calls on all employees to provide unbiased, respectful, sensitive care to transgender, non-binary and gender-expansive patients and their families. Our network of care includes, but is not limited to, offerings such as hormone therapy, psychological services, mastectomy, breast augmentation, orchiectomy and hysterectomy, although not all services are available at all facilities.

When a service is not available at a given location, care is transitioned to a provider within reasonable driving distance that offers the desired service. For example, providers are made aware that some sterilizing procedures, including some surgeries, are not performed at our Catholic facilities, and in these instances providers transition a patient’s care to other providers within a reasonable distance, including our non-Catholic facilities. 

We welcome inquiries from patients and providers about the wide range of transgender health care available at our facilities. We are deeply committed to providing high-quality, supportive, welcoming care, regardless of gender identity or expression.
