Woodhull Hospital in Queens, New York, was the first in the US to accept LGBT patients in May.
The hospital is a model for other hospitals, including the other two in Queens.
“The facility is a reflection of the values and values of the community,” Woodhulhull Healthcare director of operations, David Fitch, told Engadge.
“It is inclusive of everyone and is based on our values of compassion, compassion for people, and compassion for the planet.”
Fitch said the hospital will continue to take in LGBT patients regardless of their sexual orientation or gender identity.
“We are not discriminating against anyone, but we are inclusive of them,” he said.
“These people have brought so much love and happiness to so many people. “
I can’t thank them enough.” “

The facility has received several inquiries about LGBT patients, but Fitch has been able to work through issues with the patient population.
He said they have asked for privacy, and that he is still working to accommodate them.
“They are going to be a part of our family, and I know that they have our full support,” he told Engage.
The facility will accept patients regardless if they are HIV-positive or HIV-negative.
But there are restrictions to what they can bring in and out of the facility, and they are required to use an envelope or bag when taking out supplies.
It is also not permitted to use the facilities restrooms or shower facilities.
“There’s a lot of people who have come in here that we are trying to accommodate,” Fitch explained.
“That’s what the hospital does. “
We are trying, and we are going.””
