Translation and Sign Language Services

UH MacDonald Women’s Hospital offers translation service for non- English speaking and hearing-impaired patients 24 hours a day, seven days a week through a program known as MARTTI (My Accessible Real-Time Trusted Interpreter). MARTTI allows patients and families to hear, see and talk to an interpreter live via a wireless computer while the interpreter translates conversations between patients and providers. The service is offered in more than 180 languages, including sign language.

Sign language services for hearing-impaired patients also are available through the Cleveland Hearing and Speech Center and Deaf Services of Cleveland. Your nurse can assist you in contacting the agencies.

MARTTI, please ask your nurse for information or call the Hospital Operator, ext. 41000 or 216-844-1000 from outside the hospital
