At Massachusetts General Hospital, we are not only caregivers, support staff and researchers – we are leaders, advocates and allies. In this installment of the “I am MGH” video series, members of the MGH community share their roles in creating a more welcoming and affirming environment for transgender and gender non-binary patients. At MGH, we believe that because of diversity we excel; through inclusion we will respect; focused on equity we will serve, heal, educate and innovate.
Through a multi-disciplinary effort, MGH has established programs to provide equal access to care and services, including the MGH Psychiatry Gender Identity and Sexual Orientation Program and clinical programs in the Departments of Surgery, Urology, and Obstetrics & Gynecology. This October, the MGH Transgender Health Program will expand to include care for children and adolescents in a partnership with MassGeneral Hospital for Children.
