UPMC believes that each person has the right to understand their health. This means providing interpreters and translations, in the patient’s preferred language, through all aspects of patient care. Qualified sign and spoken language interpreters, over-the-phone interpretation services, and written information are provided free of charge. 

When patient’s better understand disease information, prognosis, risks, and treatments, they can make more informed decisions regarding their health. Empowering individuals through education in their preferred language, allows them to self-advocate and lead healthier lives.
