LGBTQ+ Patient Support

UNM Children’s Hospital is part of the only health system in New Mexico to achieve recognition from the Human Rights Campaign Healthcare Equality Index on a regular basis for:

  • Foundational protection for patients, visitors and staff in patient and staff policies and provide cultural competency training on LGBTQ inclusion
  • Demonstrating progress toward inclusion on LGBTQ patient care and support
  • Cultivating an inclusive workforce by providing LGBTQ-inclusive employee support and benefits
  • Demonstrating public commitment to the LGBTQ community

We prohibit visitor restrictions based on sexual orientation or gender identity. All patients have the right to high-quality care, regardless of gender identity, sexual orientation or relationship status.

Inclusive Care for Your Child

Your child will receive respectful, compassionate care at every appointment. Our healthcare professionals undergo “Safe Zone” training several times a year to become even better allies of the LGBTQ+ community. 

Additionally, we have partnered with the Transgender Resource Center of New Mexico to provide thoughtful, inclusive transgender care.
