Language Interpretation and Translation

Women’s College Hospital provides free language interpretation services for patients and their families when our health-care providers, staff, and/or volunteers do not share a common language or culture with the patient, or when the patient is deaf, deafened or hard of hearing. We also provide sign language interpreters for patients who are deaf, deafened or hard of hearing.

Our clinical and professional staff work to ensure that the information shared with the patient is fully understood and understandable by both parties.

Please let us know when booking your appointment if a language interpreter, deaf interpreter or an American Sign Language (ASL) interpreter is needed. Staff will make arrangements at no cost to you.
