LGBTQ Health Center

NYC Health + Hospitals/Metropolitan’s LGBTQ Health Center is designed to focus on the health needs and disparities specific to the lesbian, gay, bisexual, transgender and queer (LGBTQ) community. Our team is committed to addressing the physical and mental health needs of all our patients with dignity and respect.

Since 2013, Metropolitan has been recognized annually as a “Leader in LGBT Healthcare Equality” by the Human Rights Campaign. Their annual Healthcare Equality Index recognizes organizations that have met broad criteria that actively engage in protecting LGBTQ patients and employees from discrimination, ensuring equal visitation for LGBTQ people, and providing staff training in LGBTQ patient-centered care. Metropolitan is the first NYC public hospital to receive the designation.

The LGBTQ Health Center offers individual and family-based care, in the following areas:

  • Transgender Health
  • Women’s Health
  • Men’s Health
  • Young Adult Care
  • Geriatric Care
  • Pre-Exposure Prophylaxis (PrEP)
  • HIV/STD Screening and Treatment
  • OB/GYN
  • General Medical/Specialty Referrals
  • Immunizations
  • Preventative Care Services
  • Social Work

The LGBTQ Health Center is staffed by culturally competent, trained staff and physicians, in an open and honest environment that can provide care that respects the unique health needs of our patients.

We see patients on Tuesday afternoons, Wednesday evenings, and Saturdays, by appointment only. To schedule an appointment, contact 212-423-7292 or metlgbt@nychhc.org.
