Translation Services

MHP serves a diverse community of individuals, some of whom have difficulty communicating in English. We have medical interpreters available at no cost 24/7 – in compliance with federal and state laws – to assist patients, their family members, and other legally authorized persons. These interpreters work with clinicians and clinical specialties throughout network sites of care, providing verbal interpretation and written translation. MHP is excited to offer these services for staff and patients to better serve the diverse needs of our community.

  • American Sign Language (ASL)
  • Spanish interpreters on staff
  • Telephone-based interpreter services
  • Same-day and future appointments are available.

Telephone-based Interpreter Services

For non-English speaking patients, we offer interpreter services that can be delivered via telephone. Video interpreting provides easy, clear translation in a three-way communication – the care provider, the patient and the interpreter. This system provides instant translation access for many languages. No longer will care providers need to pause for translation services. Rather the phones are portable and can be used at multiple locations. In addition to providing speed, the phones help to ensure confidentially when sharing sensitive patient information.
