Mercy Health recognizes that effective communication is one of the key factors in providing patient centered care. We do not discriminate, but honor the rights of individuals with disabilities.

Sign and foreign language interpreters provide hearing impaired and Limited English Proficient (LEP) patients interpreting services for medical treatment and care at no charge.

For deaf and hard of hearing patients, we offer VRI technology.

For LEP patients, we provide dual-handset phones for ease of communication with providers.

Language Interpreters

Mercy Health provides free aids and services to people with disabilities to communicate effectively with us such as:

  • Qualified sign language interpreters
  • Written information in other formats (large print, Braille, audio, accessible electronic formats, other formats)

All patients have access to interpretation services 24/7 at no personal cost to them.
