Affirming Care at Rush

Equality is at the heart of Rush’s mission. We are dedicated to providing the best health care for the individuals and diverse communities we serve. One important way we accomplish this mission is by providing high-quality, affirming care to lesbian, gay, bisexual, transgender, and queer and/or questioning patients.

We also promote a culture of respect, inclusion and equal treatment for our patients, visitors, students and employees.

Rush has social workers and patient navigators available to help LGBTQ patients, visitors, employees and students navigate resources within Rush and the broader community. If you are interested in additional information or support, please contact:
