Interpretation Services

At North York General Hospital (NYGH), we embrace diversity by creating and supporting a health care environment that is inclusive.

North York General values the diverse community of over 400,000 residents we serve in north central Toronto and beyond.

The health needs of each patient and family we serve are influenced by their unique practices and traditions. More than 54% of residents living in north central Toronto do not use either of the official languages as their mother tongue.

Our Interpretation services are part of our Patient- and Family-Centred Care initiatives. We seek to address communication barriers that exist in providing health care to our diverse community. NYGH is committed to making the experience of patients and families the best it can be.

Services NYGH offers include:

To arrange a professional interpreter, speak with your health care provider.
