We can manage your hormone replacement therapy and/or PrEP, while also managing your high blood pressure and referring you to surgeons and mental healthcare providers. We have the ability to refer you internally to any of the specialties offered at Hennepin Healthcare. Physicians, community health workers, social workers, and mental health specialists work together to provide informed care in a safe environment.
Frequently Asked Questions

This is a model of caring for transgender patients who wish to masculinize or feminize their bodies with hormones in order to better align their outward appearance with their gender identity.

This is a hospital-based clinic owned by Hennepin Healthcare. Many insurance plans pay for health care services provided in a hospital-based clinic differently than those provided in a doctor’s office. Your insurance may require that you meet your annual deductible and/or require that you pay a percentage of the bill rather than just an office visit co-payment. You should check with your insurance company if you have any questions. Read the Frequently asked questions about hospital-based clinics to learn more.
