LGBTQ+



At CVCH, we have been providing health and wellness for all, for over 45 years. We are committed to breaking down barriers and increasing access to vital health care services. Part of this commitment is centered around providing access to care for our LGBTQ+ community. 

When you come to CVCH, you can expect to receive high quality, evidence-based medicine in a respectful, affirming and culturally responsive environment.  We provide comprehensive primary care, behavioral health intervention and support, dental services, pharmacy, social services, and education that is tailored to the unique needs of the LGBTQ+ community.

CVCH has helped pioneer a belief that care should be integrated, person-centered, unbiased and delivered with cultural sensitivity; we strive to meet you where you are.  As standard practice with all our patients, we will address your concerns, discuss safe sex practices, and address personal topics related to your health and well-being.

 

We can help!
