Enhancing Quality While Accommodating Growth
Mar 31, 2016
Over the past several years, as our reputation for quality care, hospitality and service has grown, more patients are choosing UF Health for medical care. New clinical faculty members were hired to accommodate this growth, along with nurses and other staff. But we can only grow so much, at least regarding inpatient services, within a fixed chassis. The new UF Health Neuromedicine Hospital and UF Health Heart & Vascular Hospital reflect our recognition that new facilities are needed to accommodate continued growth.
UF Health medical interpreters assist patients with limited English proficiency in the hospital, sharing approximately 15 to 36 patient assignments each day. They interpret for breathing tests, CT scans, emergency care and pregnancy delivery — wherever patients need a voice.
