Multilingual websites are a cost-effective way for hospitals to improve compliance and ensure patient safety for people with limited English proficiency.  Health education materials, treatment guides, privacy policies, and payment information are standard offerings. A multilingual website also positions the hospital as a “friendly” healthcare provider because it creates a sense of welcome and trust with patients.


Advantages of offering multilingual health information and documents on the website include:

  • Improved communications between doctor/nurse and patient
  • Reduced risk of malpractice
  • Easy access for people with limited English skills
  • Improved patient care
  • Information can be easily updated


Hospitals that do not provide adequate language services run the risk of compromising their patients’ healthcare.
