Interpreting and Translation
Trained interpreters provide real-time interpretation and translation services for patients who are non-English speaking or who have hearing impairments. Patients and families can use these services during clinic visits, hospital stays, or other communication with hospital staff.
On-staff resources address the primary need for Spanish interpretation and use of American sign language. A Language Bank of over 135 freelance persons as well as volunteers provide interpreter services, as needed, in over 40 languages. Please contact our interpreting program if you are bilingual and willing to participate in our Language Bank.
