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.
