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:
