Pride Program - LGBTQ+ Health
LGBTQIA+ Patient Navigation
Einstein Healthcare Network understands LGBTQIA+ identified people come against unique barriers when accessing healthcare, and often report negative experiences in healthcare settings, which is why we have a dedicated LGBTQIA+ patient navigator here to help support you. All Einstein Healthcare Network LGBTQIA+ patients, staff and their families utilizing services within the network can access the Pride Patient Navigator.
The Pride Patient Navigator provides advocacy and support and is responsible for assisting in navigating the healthcare system while assuring optimal patient care. The Pride Patient Navigator helps patients communicate with their healthcare providers so they get the information they need to make decisions about their health care.
Patient Navigation services include but are not limited to:
- Attending appointments with those receiving services within the Einstein Network
- Assisting in finding appropriate providers who are welcoming and affirming to LGBTQIA+ communities and their families
- Linkage to LGBTQIA+ services and resources offered at Einstein
- Providing referrals to local LGBTQIA+ community services, organizations, and health agencies
