Interpreters at Seattle Children’s help patients and families communicate with doctors, nurses, schedulers and other staff in English. Services are free and available 24 hours a day, 7 days a week.
We use trained medical interpreters. They have the technical knowledge to interpret your questions and comments, as well as the medical information provided by your child’s healthcare team. We do not allow relatives or friends to interpret.
Seattle Children’s provides interpreters for free so that all families get the same care and access to information, whether or not they speak English.
