OUR COMMITMENT TO DIVERSE POPULATIONS

NON-DISCRIMINATION

Children’s Hospital is committed to meeting the needs of the diverse population that we serve.  We do not discriminate on the basis of race, creed, color, national origin, religion, age, sex, sexual orientation, disability or handicap in any of our activities or operations. 

LANGUAGE ACCOMODATIONS FOR DIVERSE POPULATIONS

In order to better accommodate our diverse community, we provide the following services, free of charge, to persons with disabilities:

  • Qualified sign language interpreters
  • Written information in other format

In order to accommodate patients and families who prefer to communicate in a language other than English, we also provide the following free language services:

  • Qualified interpreters
  • Information translated into languages other than English

If you need these services, please contact the Manager of our Social Services Department at (504) 896-9367.
