UCLA Health Earns Top Score in Human Rights Campaign Foundation’s Measure of LGBTQ Health Care

Six locations within the UCLA Health system as well as the Arthur Ashe Student Health and Wellness Center all received perfect scores and the designation of “LGBTQ+ Healthcare Equality Leader” in the Human Rights Campaign Foundation’s 2022 Healthcare Equality Index.

The Human Rights Campaign Foundation calls the report “the nation’s foremost benchmarking survey of healthcare facilities on policies and practices dedicated to the equitable treatment and inclusion of their LGBTQ+ patients, visitors and employees.”

“This designation is a testament to our commitment to fostering leading equity, diversity and inclusion practices across the organization, to build a culture that welcomes all,” said Dr. Medell Briggs-Malonson, chief of health equity, diversity and inclusion for UCLA Health and associate professor of emergency medicine at the David Geffen School of Medicine at UCLA.

The Human Rights Campaign Foundation awarded top scores to the following UCLA locations:

  1. Ronald Reagan UCLA Medical Center.
  2. Stewart & Lynda Resnick Neuropsychiatric Hospital.
  3. Mattel Children’s Hospital.
  4. Arthur Ashe Student Health and Wellness Center.
  5. UCLA Santa Monica Medical Center.
  6. Olive View-UCLA Medical Center in Sylmar.
  7. Harbor-UCLA Medical Center in Torrance.

The index evaluates and scores health care facilities on detailed criteria for four pillars:

  1. Foundational policies and training in LGBTQ+ patient-centered care.
  2. LGBTQ+ patient services and support.
  3. Employee benefits and policies.
  4. Patient and community engagement.
