DCHA Statement Regarding Transgender Nondiscrimination
Recently the Trump Administration rolled back regulations prohibiting discrimination against our transgender patients, family members, associates and friends. The District of Columbia Hospital Association (DCHA) and its member hospitals are committed to treating all individuals that walk through our doors with dignity, respect and compassion no matter their race, religion, ethnicity, sexual orientation, gender, beliefs or values. This commitment to providing a caring environment echoes through our hallways, operating rooms and emergency departments every day of the year.
Fifty-one years after Stonewall, we believe it’s important to make it clear that discrimination has no place in our society and certainly not in our hospitals. Our member hospitals are committed to fostering a safe environment that celebrates the diversity of our LGBTQIA associates and patients.
