One of our first projects when we started the Cultural Competency project a decade ago, together with the Jerusalem Foundation, was to work with Hadassah in making its systems culturally competent.
A large component of their work was establishing a translation service for patients.

Here is the clip from 2011 about the project:

Many thanks to the Jerusalem Foundation for its continued support of our cultural competency program since its establishment.
