Removing Communication Barriers

The Cultural and Linguistic Services Department at UMC provides highly qualified on-site Spanish interpreters, in addition telephonic and sign-language interpreting in an effort to remove any communication barriers that may inhibit the delivery of high-quality medical care.

Face-to-face Spanish interpreters and telephonic and video interpreters are available free of charge, 24/7. Additionally, TTYs and assistive devices for hard of hearing or deaf patients are available.

We are committed to providing accurate and timely communication between patients, families and health care team members. In addition, we provide translation of written documents and ongoing education and training for caregivers and interpreters, both internally and externally.
