Human Rights Campaign

The University of Kansas Health System is among a select group of nationally recognized healthcare providers receiving Leader Status from the Human Rights Campaign based on the Healthcare Equality Index. This designation recognizes healthcare organizations for their policies and practices ensuring the equity and inclusion of lesbian, gay, bisexual, transgender and queer (LGBTQ+) patients, visitors and employees.

The Human Rights Campaign's scoring criteria includes practices in the areas of:

  • Nondiscrimination and staff training
  • Patient services and support
  • Employee benefits and policies
  • Patient and community engagement

In addition to educational events for staff, we also provide inclusion and diversity training to new employees during orientation. In addition, we launched a training program that teaches staff to provide affirming care to LGBTQ+ patients and peers.

We are proud to be recognized for the strides we have made in human equality and providing equitable care for all patients. And we look forward to learning from our patients and staff how to advance this important work. – Terry Rusconi
