Stopping the Spread of COVID 19 In Any Language
April 29, 2020
Denver Health is proud to provide care for all in our community, especially at this time when we are experiencing the novel coronavirus (COVID-19) pandemic. We provide the same quality care, no matter what language our patients speak, with the help of native-speaking patient navigators as well as our language interpretation services, serving patients who speak more than 200 different languages, free of charge.
Denver Health partnered with the City of Denver's Immigrant and Refugee Commission, New American Neighbors and Denver Public Schools, EDUCA radio, to record videos in 12 different languages about how to stay safe and stop the spread of COVID-19. We used community leaders who are native speakers from each of these different communities:
|Arabic||Imam Mahmoud HajDarwish|
|Burmese||Ka Paw Htoo|
|Spanish||Julio Martinez Coronado|
|Vietnamese||Father Joseph Dang|
|Compilation||(12 languages with English captioning)|
In each video, a native speaker urges their community to follow the stay at home/safer at home orders and apply social distancing guidelines of at least six feet whenever in public.
Telehealth Appointments at Denver Health Available in Any Language
During the COVID-19 outbreak and beyond, Denver Health is also offering telehealth appointments to all patients in all languages – which is a doctor's appointment by phone. Patients do not need to leave their homes and no special equipment is needed. The telehealth appointments are available whether you are a new or existing Denver Health patient.
