Interpreter Services

At South Shore Health, we know how important it is to communicate your healthcare needs. For those who speak and/or understand limited English, we provide trained medical interpreters when available. Our services and providers are in compliance with regulatory standards, including the HIPAA Privacy and Confidentiality guidelines. We also offer interpretation for non-English speaking patients using dual handset telephones. For those who prefer American Sign Language, in person interpreters are provided when available, or NexTalk, a video conferencing system can be used.
