Visiting a hospital or doctor’s office can be stressful — even more so if you are unable to communicate with your health care team. In these situations, Columbus Community Hospital’s interpreter services department can help.
CCH has 10 dedicated medical interpreters who help as many as 1,000 patients each month.
From emergency situations to scheduled procedures, they offer various services at the hospital, the Visiting Physicians Clinic and other private clinics in the area.
CCH’s interpreters help to:

- Translate medical forms.
- Break down complex instructions.
- Ensure patients understand any paperwork that comes along with their hospital or doctor’s visit.
In addition to CCH’s medical interpreters, the interpreter services department offers on-demand interpreting through an electronic device called My Accessible Real-Time Trusted Interpreter (MARTTI).
At the push of a button, MARTTI gives providers and patients access to more than 250 languages. Nearly 60 of these languages are available in live video and audio.
