Language Interpretation

Language Interpretation

Recognizing that the exchange of information between patient and provider is an essential element of quality patient- and family-centered care, we provide our patients and their families with qualified interpreters for languages other than English and for Sign Language (ASL).

If at any time you need a professional non-English spoken or sign language interpreter, please contact us at: 410-614-4685 or intlcallcenter@jhmi.edu.

When you call to schedule an appointment, please mention that you, or your family member, will need an interpreter. This will help us best meet your needs.

Language interpretation services are available around-the-clock.
