Chicago Lakeshore Hospital: Valeo Provides Specialized Services

by Chicago Lakeshore Hospital

Chicago Lakeshore Hospital provides recovery services for those from all walks of life struggling with psychiatric distress, behavioral problems and/or chemical addiction. The Valeo Program is designed for lesbian, gay, bisexual, and transgender (LGBT) patients to receive care in a safe environment. LGBT patients at Valeo are immersed in the healing process removed from any threat of judgment and ridicule. There, open and free expression is encouraged in all groups, activities, and meetings that take place throughout the day.

Chicago Lakeshore Hospital has been providing services for the LGBT community for more than 30 years. As such, staff members at the facility are specially trained in sensitivity and diversity matters and are well equipped to handle the specific issues this population faces. Valeo director Joe Camper and Dr. Jason Trautman have more than 40 years of professional experience between them and significant experience working with the LGBT community.
