Mountainside center in Margaretville cited as LGBT leader

MARAGARETVILLE >> For the fourth consecutive year, the Mountainside Residential Care Center has been named a national “Leader in LGBT Healthcare Equality.”

The Medicare- and Medicaid-certified nursing home received the honor from the Human Rights Campaign Foundation, the educational arm of the nation’s largest lesbian, gay, bisexual and transgender civil rights organization.

The foundation gives the distinction to U.S. healthcare facilities that meet LGBT-inclusive benchmarks contained in the foundation’s national Healthcare Equality Index 2016.

The index is an annual national survey that encourages equitable and inclusive care policies and practices for LGBT patients, visitors and employees.
