Prisma Health is committed to ensuring that everyone, including LGBTQIA+ South Carolinians, have access to quality healthcare.
Care for everyone
We offer providers who specialize in and are engaged to meet the unique medical needs of LGBTQIA+ community members, including gender-affirming hormone replacement therapy and surgery.
LGBTQIA+ physician practices
Prisma Health offers Patient-Centered Medical Homes for LGBTQIA+ patients and their families, which include providers from various specialties collaborating to improve the healthcare experience for LGBTQIA+ individuals.
These practices include:
Prisma Health Family Medicine – Forest Drive (Midlands)
An LGBTQIA+ Patient-Centered Medical Home is designed to be a place for members of the LGBTQIA+ community to receive compassionate and culturally responsive primary care that is tailored to their individual needs.
Prisma Heath leaders, doctors and our Pride Alliance business resource group are actively working to identify gaps in care for the lesbian, gay, bisexual, transgender, queer, intersex and asexual populations, to help ensure any barriers to meeting our patient needs are addressed.
The LGBTQ Alliance was established in 2017 with the mission to promote equality and visibility for gender and sexual minorities at Prisma Health. The LGBTQ Alliance has three priority areas:
- Provider clinical education.
- Staff sensitivity training.
- Development of a supportive clinical environment.
