Frequently Asked Questions

How do I request interpretation services?
When scheduling your appointment, procedure or service, please notify us know that you need an interpreter. In the Emergency Department let hospital staff know you need an interpreter as soon as you arrive.

Can my relative or friend act as my interpreter?
While your friend or family member may be bi-lingual, we want them to be there to support you but not to act as your interpreter. Our interpreters are qualified and experienced in medical setting and can be objective and impartial in difficult or emotional circumstances. If you choose to decline our hospital provided Interpreter services in lieu of using family/friend, we will ask you to sign a waiver. Your provider may request the hospital interpreter’s presence regardless of the signing of this waiver.

Is there a fee associated with interpreter services?
No, interpreter services are offered free of charge to our patients.
