Atrium Medical Center (Atrium) is committed to meeting the special needs you may have. We have a variety of resources available, like specially equipped phones for the hearing impaired and interpreters for non English-speaking patients. In accordance with the Americans with Disabilities Act and the Centers for Disease Control, we also welcome service animals (except in areas where special precautions, such as gowns, gloves, or masks are required).
If you have questions about our policies, or if you have a special need, please speak with a member of our nursing staff, or a social worker. We'll be happy to answer your questions and assist with your requests.
As part of our mission to serve and help all people, we make every effort to provide language services and communications resources for people who do not speak English and people who have hearing or visual impairments. As part of this effort, we have a part time interpreter on staff, plus we can arrange interpreting services from a professional agency. Interpreters may be scheduled for on-site visits or via telephone or internet to serve our patients or guests.
