Evergreen Health is a Leader in Healthcare Equality

Since Evergreen was founded, we have dedicated our services to those who many feel uncomfortable, misunderstood, or  judged at mainstream health care providers.

We’ve expanded across WNY — from Buffalo to Jamestown and the Southern Tier — to offer programs and services to under-served and stigmatized communities. And we’ve become a leader in many areas of care, including health care for LGBTQ+ individuals.

Evergreen is proud to have received an HEI score of 100 from the Human Rights Campaign for LGBTQ+ health care policies and procedures. 

Healthcare Equality Index (HEI) is the national LGBTQ benchmarking tool that evaluates healthcare facilities’ policies and practices related to the equity and inclusion of their LGBTQ patients, visitors and employees. –Human Rights Campaign

We offer specialized care and support for our patients in the LGBTQ+ community, including mental health counseling, transition assistance, housing, food pantry and more.
