About

The Gender Wellness Center, part of the Bassett Healthcare Network, is the largest multidisciplinary center for transgender health in upstate New York. Our mission is to bring trans-affirming health care from the margins to the mainstream by offering transgender health care from within a primary care practice.

Our gender wellness services are included among all the general health services you would expect from a family practice and are inclusive of all ages and genders. We offer on-site trans-affirming and trans-specific primary care, including medical care for gender-expansive children and youth, gender-affirming hormone therapy and mental health services. We collaborate with Bassett Healthcare Network surgeons to offer a number of gender-affirming surgeries at our local hospitals.

Our clinicians are committed to training students and professionals who have an interest in transgender health. We partner with regional organizations to offer referrals for advocacy and social support. Our facility has been designated a “Leader in LGBT Health” by the Human Rights Campaign.

Our services include

  • Primary care for transgender and gender-expansive youth and adults
  • Gynecologic care
  • Gender-affirming hormone therapy
  • Mental health services for individuals and families, including support groups
  • Medical and mental health care for gender-expansive children and youth
  • Referrals for voice therapy
  • Referrals for gender-affirming surgeries
  • Preoperative and postoperative care for gender-affirming surgeries
  • Training and mentoring for health care providers with an interest in transgender health

We hope you will make our office your center for affirming and competent health care.
