The Pride Center at NYC Health + Hospitals/Metropolitan

The Pride Health Center at NYC Health + Hospitals/Metropolitan 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.

Gender-Affirming Surgery

NYC Health + Hospitals/Metropolitan offers gender-affirming surgery on the chest, also known as “top surgery.” Feminizing top surgery can involve breast implants or breast augmentation. Masculinizing top surgery can involve a mastectomy, or removal of breast tissue.

Currently, Metropolitan offers top surgeries to transgender and gender non-conforming patients, who meet criteria defined by their insurance plans and their medical providers.
