Jefferson Healthcare has received a perfect score for the ninth year in a row with the Human Rights Campaign’s Healthcare Equality Index.

The hospital received a perfect score of 100 for the ninth year running, designating Jefferson Healthcare with the title of “LGBTQ+ Healthcare Equality Leader.”

The hospital is the only facility on the Olympic and Kitsap peninsulas to receive the designation.
