Arabic Language Access Clinic

Communication is essential in healthcare. For communication to take place successfully, all parties must share a common language. Regardless of differences in accent or dialect, the patient and the provider must be able to express themselves and understand each other adequately to arrive at mutual understanding and determine the best treatment.

Language and culture are inseparable. As a result, using the same language allows healthcare messages to be accurately rendered and comprehended in the patient’s own cultural context.

The urology department at Henry Ford is invested in providing excellent care to the Arab American Community in metropolitan Detroit. Therefore, we initiated an Arabic Language Access Clinic at the Henry Ford Medical Center - Fairlane, a location accessible to most of the Arabic speaking community in the area.
