Barnes-Jewish earns top honors in LGBT healthcare equality

September 7, 2011

A new survey of medical school deans in the U.S. and Canada found that the average number of hours that a four-year medical education dedicated to caring for gay, lesbian, bisexual and transgender patients was just five hours. The results were published this week in the Journal of the American Medical Association (JAMA).

Whatever the results of this study, Barnes-Jewish Hospital is proud to be one of 14 of the top 17 hospitals in the nation to participate in the Human Rights Campaign (HRC) Foundation’s 2011 Healthcare Equality Index (HEI). We earned top honors in the U.S. News & World Report 2012 Best Hospitals Edition by having shown our commitment to quality healthcare includes LGBT healthcare equality.
