Definition of a "Positive Space"

Positive Space refers to an environment that is open and welcoming, as well as equitable and accessible, to persons of all sexual and gender diversities, as clients/patients, employees, health care providers, and volunteers. Grounded in the core values of HHS, Positive Space reflects the hospital's commitment to provide ongoing education to staff regarding the issues around sexual and gender diversity, human rights, and resources.

Positive Space is not only a physical space. Individual people can embody the elements of Positive Space.
