Aspirus Medford Hospital & Clinics, Medford, 2020 Community Benefit

RN Provides Spanish Translation

Izamar Scoles, RN, speaking about why translating messages into Spanish is so important to her.
Izamar Scoles, registered nurse in the birthing center at Aspirus Medford Hospital, helped Aspirus translate important COVID-19 communication pieces into Spanish. These communication pieces varied from signage at the COVID-19 testing site to Facebook posts educating the community on how to stay safe to flyers posted at the entrances of Aspirus’ hospital and clinics. Medford, WI has a large Spanish-speaking population and Iza's ability to provide translation services helped provide correct information more quickly to the community.
