Access to care in many languages 

Communicating about health concerns is difficult enough without a language barrier. That’s why Oakland Medical Center has caregivers who are trained to provide care in other languages, including Spanish, Cantonese, Mandarin, Vietnamese, and American Sign Language. And in the exam room, our telephone language line offers interpreters who speak Spanish, Hindi, Russian, Cantonese, Mandarin, Tagalog, Farsi, and more.

Supporting the diverse needs of our community
Caregivers at this hospital have partnered with our Institute for Culturally Competent Care to ensure all members can easily access care. Culturally relevant education classes, videos, and printed support materials are available in several languages. (Some classes may require a fee.)
