New York-Presbyterian Brooklyn Methodist Hospital has joined only 417 others hospitals nationwide in winning designation as a Leader in LGBTQ Healthcare Equality by the Human Rights Campaign Foundation.

The 591-bed teaching hospital, located on Seventh Avenue in Park Slope, won the designation in the 11th edition of the HRC Foundation’s Healthcare Equality Index, which assesses the LGBTQ-inclusive policies and practices of participating hospitals. Scoring is based on four criteria: LGBTQ Patient-Centered Care, LGBTQ Patient Services and Support, Employee Benefits and Policies, and LGBTQ Patient and Community Engagement.

Last year, NYP Brooklyn Methodist established an LGBTQ Healthcare Task Force, comprised of employees from across the hospital. The task force’s initiatives included LGBTQ healthcare training for staff, implementing rainbow badge clips so LGBTQ patients can identify advocates on staff, and gender-neutral bathroom signage. The staff training included a specialized effort with Emergency Department Liaisons.

In collaboration with Weill Cornell Medicine, NYP Brooklyn Methodist, whose history dates back 135 years, provides specialized services in advanced and minimally invasive surgery, neurosciences, orthopedics, digestive and liver disorders, and cancer and cardiac care. The hospital houses Centers of Excellence for bariatric surgery and breast imaging, a cancer program accredited by the Commission on Cancer, and a New York State-designated stroke center.
