PRINEVILLE, Ore. (KTVZ) -- The Crook County Health Department has updated its interpretation services. It is very excited to announce that the clinical team can now offer live video interpretation services for non-English speaking clients, as well as American Sign Language for deaf or hard of hearing clients.
Providing services in a client’s primary language is important for increasing accesses to care for all.
The video interpreting service allows both the client and clinic staff to see the interpreter, providing high quality of care that facilitates clear communication.
Now everyone in Crook County, no matter their language or interpretation needs can receive the following services at the Crook County Health Department clinic:
- Women, Infant, and Children (WIC) services
- Well-women visit
- Childhood and adult vaccinations
