The SFMH Gender Institute has been established to deliver compassionate, high-quality, affordable health services to transgender patients and their families. Our program is committed to delivering excellence in the overall care for patients of all gender identities and we offer “best in class” experience in healthcare for transgender and gender nonconforming individuals.
Dignity Health’s Saint Francis Memorial Hospital has become the first hospital internationally to achieve accreditation as a Center of Excellence in Gender Confirmation Surgery by globally-recognized Surgical Review Corporation (“SRC”) -- a nonprofit patient safety organization dedicated to recognizing and refining surgical care.
We understand each individual has different experiences and is in a different phase of their transition. Our best-in-class surgeons are here to affirm your gender identity.
Following are community-based resources outside of SFMH that may provide support and information.
Saint Francis Memorial Hospital is pleased to announce that it has earned an “LGBTQ+ Health Care Quality Leader” designation from the Human Rights Campaign Foundation (HRC).
Diversity and inclusion are central to our mission to serve everyone in our community. Dignity Health’s core values – dignity, collaboration, stewardship, justice, and excellence – champion a diverse, accepting, and welcoming healing environment. At Saint Francis Memorial Hospital we embrace our diverse community and celebrate our differences. We respect human dignity in every interaction with each other and with the individuals and communities we serve.
