Quality health care begins with the patient-provider relationship, and quality health care for a population as diverse as Greater Lowell’s requires effective communication in all of the services the Health Center provides.
The Health Center employs bilingual providers who can meet the cultural, linguistic and medical needs of non-English and limited English speaking populations. Over 80 members of our staff are trained medical interpreters and can assist patients in better communicating with medical professionals.
Some of the more than 28 languages that our staff speaks include Khmer, Laotian, Spanish, Portuguese, Vietnamese, French, Mandarin, Hindi and Swahili. Additional languages can be accommodated using telephone interpreter language lines.
