We offer cultural and spiritual services to support your health care, including sign language interpreters, spoken language interpreters, the Aboriginal Patient Navigator program, and spiritual care & multi-faith services.
Sign Language (ASL) interpreters are available for deaf, deaf-blind, and hard of hearing patients. If you or a family member needs this service you can call directly. Find hospital-specific information on the hospital care page.
Spoken Language interpreters are available to help with communication between staff and patients who have limited English. These interpreters may be requested by VCH staff only. If you or your family needs the help of an interpreter, please speak to a staff member.
The Aboriginal Patient Navigator program helps Aboriginal people access health services at Vancouver Coastal Health. Contact us to get in touch with an Aboriginal Patient Navigator.
