Company Overview

Christiana Care Health System's two hospitals earned Leader in LGBTQ Healthcare Equality designation, only hospitals in Delaware to earn prestigious designation.

“Christiana Care has been a pioneer in LGBTQ health equality,” said Timothy Rodden, MDiv, MA, BCC, FACHE, system coordinator for LGBTQ health initiatives. “We strive to grow our programs and resources to meet the health needs for LGBTQ Delawareans and to partner with others in the state.”

Among the achievements that helped earn 2017 Leader status:

  • Christiana Care provides transgender health benefits to employees and their dependents. Christiana Care is the only health system in Delaware to do so.
  • Christiana Care’s LGBTQ Health Initiatives webpage helps the LGBTQ community to readily find information about LGBTQ services at Christiana Care and in the community, and to locate LGBTQ-friendly health care providers, as well as other useful resources.
  • A “Transgender Care Guidelines and Resources” best practice tips and guidelines document was created to help clinicians, providers and other staff to provide respectful care to transgender patients and their families.
  • Christiana Care produced an “It Gets Better” video as a community outreach tool to help prevent suicide for at-risk LGBTQ adolescents and young adults.

Christiana Care is a great place to work in part because of the uniqueness of our employees, volunteers, and affiliated health professionals. Each one of us brings our own history, characteristics, and skills to our jobs every day.

Our individual backgrounds and perspectives help us provide the best health care possible. Collectively, we can better serve our patients with empathy, understanding, and respect.

This inclusive culture helps everyone have the opportunity to fully engage and embrace their uniqueness. In an ever-changing environment, fostering inclusion is important to advancing transformation in how we treat others and care for our patients. We seek to raise awareness of our commitment to creating a culture of inclusion and continue to learn from and grow with one another.
