Language Interpreter Services for Non-English Speaking and Hearing-Impaired Patients
While you are a patient at St. Mary Medical Center, you have the right
to communicate with people inside and outside of the medical center.
If you do not speak or understand English or have a hearing impairment,
you have the right to have access to an interpreter. SMMC provides interpreter
and translation services for our non-English speaking patients and the
hearing impaired. If you are in need of these services, please ask a hospital
staff member who can assist you. There are TTY units located in the emergency
department and the administrative coordinator’s office for the hearing
impaired. In the event that you have a concern regarding this process,
please contact the interpreter coordinator at extension 8005.
