Our goal is to provide transgender and non-binary patients with transgender health care services that are evidence-based and have an individualized approach to meet our patient's personal goals and needs. Virginia Mason Franciscan Health is proud to provide skilled and compassionate health care services with our multidisciplinary team in a welcoming and supportive environment.
We respect how individualized and private gender transition is and that many patients have questions about approaches or the elements of gender transition. Our team utilizes the World Professional Association for Transgender Health Guidelines (WPATH) as well as clinical guidelines within each specialty to work together to help achieve optimal health and well-being for our patients.
We also consult the Bree Collaborative and Healthcare Equity Index to help identify ways to continue to improve the quality of health care we deliver.
Since 2019, Virginia Mason Medical Center has been designated as a Leader in LGBTQ Healthcare Equality Index, scoring a top score of 100 in the Human Rights Campaign Foundation (HRC) survey.
