Inclusive Care

Our mission statement at Healthy Connections is “Improving the health and well-being of the communities we serve with a commitment to excellence in all that we do.” This includes everyone in the communities we serve. And even though we have a strong history of supporting the LGBTQ+ community, we continue to challenge ourselves to understand how we can make our organization the safest and most welcoming place for LGBTQ+ patients and their families to receive care.”

When you come to Healthy Connections with your health care needs, you can expect:

  • An understanding of both your unique health care needs as well as your everyday wellness concerns.
  • Providers who are skilled and knowledgeable in providing gender-affirming care.
  • Team members who are knowledgeable about health issues impacting lesbian, gay, bisexual, trans, and queer patients.
  • The availability of gender-neutral restrooms
  • A commitment to closing health disparities faced by the LGBTQ+ community.



We believe all people deserve care that embraces their unique needs and affirms their individuality. That’s why we offer a variety of services in Arkansas to meet all your healthcare needs, including transgender healthcare needs.


Your provider will lead your health care team and coordinate all your care in a safe and welcoming environment.

Gender-Affirming care

Healthy Connections offers gender-affirming care, including medical and behavioral health services.

Family-planning services

Staff who can comfortably discuss family planning options with LBGTQ+ parents, same-gender couples, and/or single parents.

HIV Sevices and PrEP

We offer services for testing and treatment of HIV along with PrEP (Pre-Exposure Prophylaxis) for HIV patients and partners.

Infectious Disease Treatment

We offer testing and treatment for STD (sexually-transmitted diseases), Hepatitis B, and Hepatitis C. Other appropriate screenings based on age, risk factors, and organ inventory (for example, pap smears) are offered.

HRT Services

As a trans woman, trans man, or nonbinary person, you may want your body to look and feel differently. You may hope to look as female or male as possible. Or you might just want less obvious sex characteristics. Whatever your goal, we’ll work with you to find the right transgender hormone therapy for you.

You have unique healthcare needs. And you can receive the care you need by finding providers near you who are trained in LGBTQ+ health and who exhibit cultural awareness.

A note about acronyms. Many acronyms are used among LGBTQ+ communities. Healthy Connections uses LGBTQ+: Lesbian, Gay, Bisexual, Transgender, and Questioning. These are used with the understanding that many additional terms can be used to identify someone’s sexual orientation and/or gender identity. The plus sign represents the fact that terminology continues to change and evolve. There are many different variations of the LGBTQ+ acronym, and the ‘+’ acknowledges that it is not possible to list every term people currently use.
