Deaf Access works with a number of other hospitals which provide access in sign language. This list also includes hospitals recommended for their sign language access by other Deaf consumers. This list does not list hospitals by other aspects or the quality of their care. This list is for inpatient services and limited outpatient services. It generally does not refer to outpatient visits to doctors associated with these hospitals, except where noted.
If you are a Deaf consumer and wish to nominate a hospital to be on this list because of its use of sign language access, please contact us at: DeafAccess@DeafAccessChicago.com.
