Translators and Interpreters
JFK Medical Center provides free interpretation, translation and sign language services for limited English proficiency and deaf patients.
We encourage patients to use available interpretation services for important medical discussions. Patient care treatment involves medical terminology that may be complicated in any language. The interpretation services available through JFK Medical Center include phone interpretation in most languages. Translation of critical documents and patient education material for common patient conditions is also available.
If you require an interpreter, sign language interpreter or a translator, please contact the Patient Representative Office at ext. 732-321-7566 or ask your admitting clerk or nurse for assistance.
In an emergency, the ASL Referral Service 800-275-7551 can provide a sign language interpreter within three hours — 24 hours a day, seven days per week. Services utilized through ASL are provided at no charge to the patient. However, we ask that you notify the Patient Representative Office as to the name of the patient and the interpreter so that the Medical Center can make the necessary payment arrangements for services rendered.
