The Language Services Department is an on-site centralized resource service, which strives to provide high quality linguistic appropriate services to our LEP-Limited English Proficient and ASL-American Sign Language patients and their families.
If you feel more comfortable speaking another language, or need ASL to communicate with your health care provider, we will arrange for an interpreter at no cost to you.
Using an interpreter will not affect your right to privacy and confidentiality. Our medical interpreters are trained, and abide by established Professional Standards, Code of Ethics and confidentiality norms as other hospital staff.
If you would like to arrange for an interpreter who speaks your language, including Sign Language, please inform the clinic staff before your visit and they will make the necessary arrangements.
