Our Mission

Guided by the needs of our Limited English Proficient (LEP) and Deaf and Hard of Hearing (DHH) patients and families; and by our National Professional Standards and Code of Ethics, we aim to foster patient-centered care by delivering the highest quality, compassionate interpreting services with flexibility, in a timely and professional manner.

Our Commitment to Care

We are certified professionals who are part of the medical team; and who bridge the linguistic and cultural divide between providers, patients and their families to ensure that the safest and highest quality healthcare possible is delivered to the Limited English Proficient (LEP) and the Deaf and Hard of Hearing (DHH) communities we serve.

Our work is motivated by a genuine sense of empathy, a passion for justice and a deep respect for our patients, their families and our MGH colleagues.

Our environment is built on mutual respect and trust where we nurture one another to strive for excellence as professional medical interpreters.
