Pride Program - LGBTQ+ Health

Leadership and Staff


Michael George
Vice President of Healthcare Services at Einstein Philadelphia

I was drawn to Einstein Healthcare Network based on the quality of care and the organization's devotion to the mission to serve all who come through the door. The feeling of inclusivity is apparent in every program. From the moment I interviewed 10 years ago through my recent promotion to Vice President of Healthcare Services, I have felt fully supported and embraced by Einstein Healthcare Network. We value the diversity of our community, and we advocate strongly for inclusion of LGBT+ employees in our organization. I am especially proud of the excellent care and service we provide to our LGBT+ patients through Einstein's Pride Program.
