"We strive to provide appropriate, up to date, evidence-based care for our trans patients, including preventive services, behavioral health services, hormone therapy, general medical care, and referral to community resources.  We recognize that there is a huge gap in healthcare that is accessible and appropriate for transgender patients in the United States and especially in the South." - Jennifer Abbott, MD

WNCCHS is an LGBTQIA+ friendly organization.  Providing effective, culturally competent care is critical to serving this diverse community.  While transgender people have the same basic care needs as cisgender people, there are specific transition-related care needs that require expanded knowledge, awareness, and sensitivity.  WNCCHS has the resources and ability to cater to the needs of transgender and nonbinary individuals in an environment that is welcoming and supportive.
WNCCHS is proud to have offered high-quality, culturally competent transgender health services since 2007.
