COMPASS can help facilitate understanding and language communications by providing experienced, trained, objective and confidential interpreters.

Our interpreters are specially trained in the areas of basic interpreting skills, overview of the health care system in the United States, culture and its impact on interpreting, communication skills and advocacy, and professional development. Additionally, they complete the Cross Cultural Healthcare Program’s nationally certified 40-hour medical interpretation course, Bridging the Gap.
