In an 8/2/10 broadcast, FOX59 News in Indianapolis reported on the claims by a transgender patient that she was ridiculed and refused treatment by staff at Ball Memorial Hospital. Advocacy groups have filed complaints against the hospital saying that the patient,  Erin Vaught, was “…inhumanely treated, dehumanized, and disrespected.”

Earlier this year The LGBT Cancer Project – Out With Cancer worked with several organizations to make the policies of the Jackson Memorial Hospital in Miami more inclusive of the needs of the LGBT community.
