Our Department of Medicine's Response to Recent Community Events

On behalf of the Department of Medicine

To our patients,

We want to reach out to you regarding the recent events in our community. In the wake of events surrounding the death of George Floyd, we want you to know that the Hennepin Healthcare Department of Medicine stands alongside our community. We share your feelings of grief and trauma, and have also experienced this grief and trauma firsthand. We rise in solidarity with all members of our community who are grieving and fighting against social injustice and structural racism. We want you to know that we are here for you and your families. We will support the cause of racial justice and are also well aware that inequality leads to poorer health care outcomes.

We recognize the strain that these events have put on our community both emotionally and physically. We continue to provide the best medical care for you. We also understand the fear, mistrust and difficulties you may experience while navigating your healthcare needs, and will work to eliminate these barriers. We are committed to providing safe, accessible, and unbiased healthcare for all who are in need or desire it and we will partner with our community to learn how best to address inequities in effective and meaningful ways. We are here to care for you and share in your wellness. We encourage you to call us with any concerns as well as thoughts on how we can move forward in this necessary journey together.

We are here with you, for life.

Frequently Asked Questions

If you can, bring any medical records you have from previous doctors. We will need to know about any and all medical problems, previous surgeries, allergies, current medications, immunizations, family history, and any other information about your body and life that might be important for your healthcare.

Locally, within the Twin Cities, we can refer you for facial feminization surgery, voice surgery, top surgery (breast augmentation as well as masculinizing chest reconstruction), and recently, for vaginoplasty. There will likely be more to come soon.

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. The heart of this idea is that if someone can demonstrate that they are able to understand the risks, benefits, and potential effects of hormone replacement, a doctor can and will be willing to help them safely begin and continue hormone replacement therapy (HRT).

Hospital-based care

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.
