LGBTQIA+ Healthcare Services in New Jersey

LGBTQIA+ healthcare encompasses more than just sexual orientation. At Vanguard Medical Group, we believe it requires a comprehensive and multidisciplinary approach that can address the unique needs and challenges of our LGBTQIA+ patients. Across all of our locations in New Jersey, our health providers are dedicated to providing the thorough care required in order to achieve the best quality of life.

An Integrated Approach

Vanguard Medical Group is committed to helping LGBTQIA+ people of all ages meet their general health care needs in a sensitive environment that is safe and welcoming. We know that the LGBTQIA+ community has experienced discrimination in health care, leading some to lack trust or confidence in their doctors and to delay needed care. Many have felt the need to conceal their sexual orientation or gender identity to feel accepted by their health care providers.

We Listen to You

At Vanguard Medical Group, we provide an open and welcoming environment for all, regardless of sexual orientation or gender identity — whether gay, lesbian, bisexual, transgender, or gender non-conforming, queer or straight. We want your family to be our family, and we welcome whomever you choose to be part of your medical support system, whether it is your partner, friend, or relative.
