TeleHealth has rapidly evolved as an increasingly valuable approach in healthcare

Enhancing Communication Services for Deaf Hard-of-Hearing

Henry Ford Health System is committed to ensuring that our patients and their companions who are deaf or hard-of-hearing have equal access to all the services provided at our facilities. As part of a settlement of an Americans with Disabilities Act complaint, Henry Ford is implementing new and additional processes to enhance our communication efforts with patients and their companions who are deaf or hard-of-hearing. This includes providing at no cost to patients and their companions the appropriate auxiliary aids and services, including qualified sign language interpreters, TTYs and other assistive listening devices. Each Henry Ford business unit will soon be assigned a designated program administrator to help ensure effective communication for patients and their companions. More details about these improvements are forthcoming. For information, call (313) 916-1896 or email hardofhearingprogram@hfhs.org.
