Why Do Hospitals Need Professional Medical Interpreters?

Why Do Hospitals Need Professional Medical Interpreters?


The ability for healthcare professionals and patients to communicate is vitally important to the safety and comfort of the patient during care, but more than 24 million Americans do not speak enough English to communicate effectively with their healthcare provider.

Professional medical interpreters bridge this gap to ensure that patients receive accurate diagnoses and appropriate care and treatment. Medical interpreters also help providers understand the patient's cultural background and how it may influence the patient’s healthcare decisions.

Medical interpreters, especially those speaking Spanish, Portuguese, Arabic, Russian, Chinese, Haitian Creole and Vietnamese are in high demand as the country's population becomes more and more diverse.
