Communicating Across Language Barriers
It is important to us that all of our patients are able to effectively communicate with their doctors. To this end, we have a large staff of in-hospital interpreters fluent in many languages. We are happy to provide free interpreters for English, Korean, Burmese, Japanese and Arabic speaking patients during normal business hours (8am to 5pm).
We will gladly arrange an interpreter outside of normal business hours, however this will be at an additional expense to the patient. The hospital can also provide interpreters for other languages, such as Russian or Mandarin, but this will also be at the patient’s expense.
