Virginia Mason is proud to provide skilled and compassionate health care services to transgender and gender variant patients in a welcoming and supportive environment. Depending on each patient’s preferences, we also welcome partners, spouses, family and friends to be part of the programs and services we provide.

Our goal is to partner with patients to assure they receive the best primary and transgender-related care for all their needs, including many skilled surgical services. We also work with organizations and other clinics serving the LGBTQ communities in Washington state.

No matter what your needs or where you are in your health care journey, Virginia Mason is here to help you achieve optimal health and well-being.
