Language Assistance Services
Free interpreter services are available for patients and families with Limited English Proficiency (LEP) or who are deaf or hard of hearing under Title VI of the Civil Rights Act.* Hospital staff are responsible for arranging for this assistance.
Our facility has instant 24 hour access to telephonic interpretation services. Also available are staff interpreters, trained and tested volunteer interpreters, and agency interpreters.
Many vital forms and documents have been translated into Spanish. Documents in other languages or documents that are not translated will be interpreted via an interpreter either in person or over the phone.
