Effective communication is vitally important in the process of delivering quality health care services. However, in today’s world, language differences can pose dramatic challenges for patients, their families and health care providers.
With a staff of more than 25 nationally certified health care interpreters, MIHS is dedicated to providing quality inpatient and outpatient medical service interpretation to the entire community. Our staff works with a diverse patient population and community by providing interpretation services in more than 50 different languages. Services are available free-of-cost to patients and families 24 hours a day.
Our translators ensure that no message is lost in translation by applying their detailed knowledge of cultural distinctions and years of experience. In 2015 written translations were provided in Spanish, Arabic, French, Chinese and Swahili, to name only a few.
