Transgender Health

Denver Health’s LGBT Center of Excellence offers open and affirming health care to transgender and gender non-conforming populations. We have trained medical doctors at our nine family health centers and main campus who can provide the medical assistance you need, including patient navigation, assistance in updating gender identification on your credentials, behavioral health and general primary care. We also offer gender reassignment surgery (confirmation surgery) options.

  • HIV care — Denver Health has a national reputation as a leader in the prevention and treatment of HIV. Our Center for Positive Health offers specialized primary care for those with HIV.
