In order to meet the needs of the diverse community we serve, Garfield
Medical Center provides interpretation services free of charge for Limited
English Proficient (LEP) patients and families. The over-the-phone interpretation
service supports more than 200 languages and is available 24 hours a day.
Using dual handset "blue phones," the patient and health care
provider connect to the appropriate interpreter within one minute.
To facilitate routine communication, members of Garfield Medical Center's
culturally diverse staff are able to assist.
