Human Rights Campaign Foundation announces designation of ‘LGBTQ Healthcare Equality Leader’
“Respect every person” is one of Norton Healthcare’s foundational values that employees commit to following as they care for patients and foster a positive work culture. And now that commitment has been recognized. We are proud to have earned a score of 100 on the selective Healthcare Equality Index administered by the Human Rights Campaign Foundation.
We invite you to watch this video announcement from Russell F. Cox, president and CEO, Norton Healthcare, to learn more about what it means to be a Leader in Healthcare Equality.
Norton Healthcare recently launched NPride — an employee resource group for LGBTQ and ally staff members — and was a presenting sponsor of the Louisville Pride Festival held in September.
“Walking down the street with friends, I was incredibly proud to say, ‘That’s where I work!’” said Michael R. Detmer, music therapist, Norton Women’s & Children’s Hospital. “I feel safe, supported and valued — not only for my contribution as a professional, but for who I am as a person.”
In addition to providing a welcoming work culture for employees, Norton Healthcare is committed to creating a safe, accessible care environment for patients. To help support those efforts, employees have access to online courses that provide a better understanding of our LGBTQ patients and their health care needs.
