Twin Cities hosting LGBTQ healthcare forum
–Twin Cities Community Hospital is hosting an LGBTQ Healthcare Community Forum on Wednesday, Sept. 13. The event will start at 6:30 p.m. in the Founders’ Pavilion located adjacent to the hospital at 1220 Las Tablas Road in Templeton. The community is invited to meet local healthcare providers who are committed to improving the health and well-being of the LGBTQ community with sensitive and culturally competent care. There will also be a roundtable discussion about the state of LGBTQ healthcare in our community and the issues that matter most to LGBTQ patients and their families. Refreshments will be served. Please call to reserve your seat, as space is limited.
“At Twin Cities we are focused on providing a safe and welcoming environment to everyone we serve and to delivering high-quality care to all our patients,” says Mark Lisa, chief executive officer of Twin Cities Community Hospital. “As such, we must provide care that is culturally competent and patient-centered to all people, regardless of race, ethnicity, religion, gender, sexual orientation, gender identity or expression, national origin, age, disability or veteran status.”
In an effort to ensure it is a welcoming and inclusive hospital for all patients, employees and visitors, Twin Cities Community Hospital is currently in the process of becoming a Leader in LGBTQ Healthcare Equality as designated by the Human Rights Campaign Foundation. Accreditation is expected later this year. The goal is to ensure that patients, employees and visitors continue to feel safe, secure, welcomed and protected from discrimination.
