NewYork-Presbyterian/Queens has worked hard to build services that are sensitive to the customs, traditions and needs of our diverse community. The hospital has multi-lingual physicians, nurses and other staff who offer real-time language translation services in more than 100 languages and dialects. We also make considerable use of the Language Line® phone lines as well as our new mobile video interpretation technology. Beyond language, we offer menus featuring foods popular with Asian patients - it is like a “taste of home” while at our hospital.
