This is what an employee had to say about our interpreters here at Barton Health: "I know you’re working hard all over the hospital, but we especially appreciate you at SNF with our elderly folks that are hard of hearing and have a tough time with technology. You were all so patient and kind, and you played a very special part in our patient’s experience here. We’re lucky to have each of you and LAS at Barton."
