Interpreter Services and Communication Assistance

It is the policy of Mayo Clinic Health System northwest Wisconsin region sites and affiliates to assist any patient who has an identified special need including but not limited to hearing impairment, vision impairment, or a language barrier, which would compromise proper communication in the clinical setting. All patients have the right to free auxiliary aids, competent written translation and oral interpretation. Mayo Clinic Health System and affiliates are committed to ensuring that individuals who are deaf or hard of hearing and individuals with limited English proficiency (LEP) have meaningful, accurate, and equal access to programs, benefits and activities.
