At New York Methodist Hospital, we believe that communication and mutual understanding form the foundation of compassionate health care. We know that when you or your loved one needs help or is in pain, clear understanding is a necessity. According to the most recent US Census, almost half of Brooklyn’s residents speak a language other than English at home.
That’s why we offer telephone interpretation services available in 150 languages twenty-four hours a day, seven days a week, as well as hundreds of bilingual volunteers and staff members. American Sign Language interpreters are also available.
With the exception of this section and the homepage, each page on NYM.org is equipped with a "select language" button located on the right side of the page, which can translate any page into your language.
