Gender Pathways Clinic Program and Services

The Gender Pathways Clinic at Kaiser Permanente Northwest provides culturally competent care to transgender and gender-expansive patients. Gender Pathways is a unique place for Kaiser Permanente members to receive integrated care in a comfortable, supportive setting.

Our specialist team consists of providers from internal medicine, gynecology, psychiatry, surgery, social work, nursing, and community health navigation who provide high-quality, gender-affirming:

  • Hormone therapy
  • Sexual and reproductive health care
  • Mental health services
  • Surgical evaluations and procedures

Our compassionate providers are leaders in their fields who have developed best practice guidelines in transgender health that are used throughout Kaiser Permanente. We look forward to partnering with you on your comprehensive health care needs.
