Putting IDEAs into Practice: Healthcare Equality Index
In 2019, UF Health Jacksonville was recognized as an LGBTQ Healthcare Equality Leader by the Human Rights Campaign Foundation in its 2019 Healthcare Equality Index report. This top designation was awarded during the first year of evaluation for UF Health Jacksonville.
The scoring criteria included a higher benchmark in 2019. In order to earn the top score of 100, participating facilities were evaluated on their patient non-discrimination policies, inclusivity training for staff, LGBTQ patient services and support, and employee benefits and policies.
UF Health Jacksonville takes pride in providing compassionate and inclusive care for all patients.
