Safe and affirming providers

To earn the "Safe and Affirming" designation, providers individually complete an online training program developed by the National LGBTQIA+ Health Education Center and implemented by Spectrum Health.

Provider training covers a variety of clinical and cultural topics—such as proper terms, how to use pronouns and much more—with the goal of reducing gaps in care, increasing trust and building intentional connections with the LGBTQIA+ community.

Our patient navigator can help.

Whether you need primary care, a specialist, a specific service or support, getting you connected with the care and resources that are right for you is our goal. That’s why we have a patient navigator dedicated to the LGBTQIA+ community who can match you with a safe and affirming provider that fits your needs. 

Our patient navigator is also embedded in the community, developing relationships with support, social and advocacy groups to ensure you can get connected with the right resources when you need them. Contact the patient navigator at 833.968.0263 (Monday to Friday, 8am to 5pm) or complete the form to have the navigator contact you.
