Pride Program - LGBTQ+ Health

Einstein's Pride Program in Philadelphia offers the LGBTQ community a professional, safe and caring home for your healthcare needs.

Why Einstein Pride Program?

A Caring Home for Your Healthcare Needs

Einstein Healthcare Network's Pride Program offers LGBTQ+ staff, patients, and their families a professional, safe and caring home for their healthcare needs.

Einstein Healthcare Network understands you probably experience health needs differently and have certain health issues more likely to affect you. That's why we offer:

  • Cancer screening - Sensitive, basic gynecological care designed to catch cancer early enough for treatment to be effective.
  • Pelvic health - Experienced, comprehensive, state-of-the-art services to diagnose a variety of bladder and pelvic floor disorders, and treatment to relieve painful symptoms.
  • Menopause counseling and treatment - Effective health assessments and personalized treatment for menopause symptoms.
  • Reproductive healthcare - We can support you and your family’s needs for family planning and pregnancy.

Confidential, Respectful, Accessible

When we set out to develop this program at Einstein Medical Center Philadelphia, we did so by working with the LGBTQ+ community to better understand your health concerns including:

  • Confidentiality
  • Respectful and compassionate care
  • Access to care

We used those concerns as the foundation for our program. We offer a full scope of obstetric and gynecologic care, surgical services, hormone therapy, outpatient mental healthcare, and patient navigator support. We are conveniently located in Philadelphia, where you will find a safe, professional and innovative medical practice, dedicated to your specific health needs.

Pride Programs Qmmunity

Our youth-led, drop-in Qmmunity sessions are a safe environment where members of the LGBTQ+ Qmmunity can access useful resources for their daily lives. The sessions are normally held every 3rd Thursday of the month from 3-7pm at Einstein Medical Center Philadelphia.

We have been carefully monitoring the spread of COVID-19 in the US and our region. Einstein has always placed the health of our patients first and foremost, and in that interest we have cancelled all upcoming non-essential events, including Qmmunity sessions, until further notice.

We will continue to closely monitor the situation and will update this page when we believe it is safe to begin scheduling sessions again. If you have any questions, please feel free to call us at 1-800-EINSTEIN.

When we resume, join us for:

  • Peer groups
  • A light meal - There will always be takeout containers for attendees
  • Patient Navigation services - answers to insurance questions, resume-building, referrals to youth services throughout Philadelphia, and navigating job listings
  • Community Conversations - rotating topics and health and wellness education
  • Art and creative healing - art-making sessions and creative writing
  • Access to free seasonal clothing, toiletries and non-perishable food items
