Interpretation & Translation
At NYU Langone Medical Center, we are dedicated to providing you with the services you need to communicate your healthcare needs.
For families and patients who prefer to communicate in a language other than English, we provide professional medical interpreters free of charge. Interpreters can help you and your family during all phases of your care, whether you are visiting us for testing or treatment or have been admitted to the hospital.
We provide face-to-face interpreters as well as interpreters available by telephone or video conference.
If you would like an interpreter, please tell a member of your healthcare team. If you have questions about our services at NYU Langone’s Tisch Hospital, please call 212-263-3762. For our services at NYU Langone’s Hospital for Joint Diseases, please call 212-598-6651.
Translation of Medical Documents
We have translated a variety of medical forms and patient-education materials into several languages. Please ask your healthcare provider if the forms or materials you need are available in your preferred language.
If you receive written information in English that you would prefer in another language, please tell your healthcare provider—we may be able to have the information translated or have an interpreter work with you.
In addition, if you need important personal documents such asmedical records translated into English from another language, we may be able to arrange that for you. Please speak with a member of your healthcare team for more information.
