We provide free interpreting services to patients and their partners in care.

Interpreting/Language Services—Dial “0” and ask to speak with the administrative supervisor OR ask your nurse.

For the Deaf and Hearing Impaired

We will make every effort to provide you with a qualified American Sign Language interpreter. If an interpreter is not available, we will provide communication in a way you can understand.

To ensure effective communication with Patients and their Companions who are deaf or hard-of-hearing, we provide appropriate auxiliary aids and services, which may include sign language and oral interpreters, video remote interpreting services, note takers, written materials, telephone handset amplifiers, telephones compatible with hearing aids, televisions with captioning or closed caption decoders, and open and closed captioning of most hospital programs. These will be provided free of charge when appropriate. Please ask your nurse or other hospital personnel for assistance.
