In order to provide culturally-sensitive and appropriate services to the LGBT community, Hines VA hospital emphasizes four core elements: 1) patient non-discrimination policy that includes sexual orientation and gender identity, 2) an equal visitation policy that allows any person the patient chooses, including same-sex partners to be present during a patient’s stay, 3) an employment non-discrimination policy, and 4) training in LGBT patient-centered care. Their efforts in promoting equality were recognized in 2013 by the Human Rights Campaign’s Healthcare Equality Index as being a leader in LGBT Health Care Equality.

Hines VA hospital currently operates 471 beds and six community based outpatient clinics in Elgin, Kankakee, Oak Lawn, Aurora, LaSalle, and Joliet.
