place a special designation at the entrance to Wesley
Long Hospital.

Cone Health has been recognized as a leader in LGBT health care equality by the Human Rights Campaign Foundation – the educational arm of the country’s largest lesbian, gay, bisexual and transgender (LGBT) civil rights organization. Cone Health is the only health system in the Piedmont to achieve this distinction. Each of its six hospitals individually earned this special equality designation.

“It’s exciting for Cone Health to be known as a place that recognizes and appreciates the differences of all of our employees, patients and communities,” says Cone Health Chief Inclusion Officer and Wesley Long Hospital President Paul Jeffrey.
