Corporate Bias Rating

Expand Summary

Risk Level:

Rating - Clear
Lower Risk


Sentara Healthcare (Sentara) does not provide viewpoint protections for its employees but has not publicly terminated business relationships based on views or beliefs. All 12 Sentara hospitals scored a 100 on the 2022 Healthcare Equality Index from the Human Rights Campaign (HRC). This indicates, among other things, the medical centers "offer transgender-inclusive healthcare benefits to their employees", which includes coverage for hormone replacement therapy, puberty blockers, and gender reassignment surgeries for employees and their children. By complying with the HRC’s controversial demands, the company increases the risk of dividing employees, alienating customers and harming shareholders. Sentara offers unconscious bias and inclusivity training to its employees. Sentara has also supported the YWCA. However, it does not appear to discriminate against charitable organizations based on views or beliefs and has not lobbied for ideological purposes. For these reasons, Sentara Healthcare receives a Medium Risk rating.
