  • Arranging appointments with physicians
  • Coordinating care among specialists to assure total communication

Our caseworkers are trained healthcare professionals and have the background to explain and answer questions.

Personal Services That Make Your Stay More Convenient

A personal liaison guides each international patient every step along the way, assisting with:

Accommodations and travel. We will help arrange travel to and from the airport, hotel accommodations, ground transportation and patient escorts.

Interpretation. The department's staff members are multi-lingual, and interpreters proficient in some 30 languages are available upon request through our Language Assistance Lines.

Support. We maintain close relationships with faith-based and social organizations that can provide further support to patients. We are able to provide for special religious or cultural needs or diets.
