Video Interpreting Language Services Now Offered at Crook County Health Department 


Crook County Health Department has updated the interpretation services and is pleased to announce that the clinical team can now offer live video interpretation services for non-English speaking clients, as well as American Sign Language for deaf or hard of hearing  clients.

Providing services in a client’s primary language is important for increasing access to care for all. The  video interpreting service allows both the client and clinic staff to see the interpreter, providing high  quality of care that facilitates clear communication. Now everyone in Crook County, no matter their  language or interpretation needs can receive the following services at the Crook County Health  Department clinic:  

  • Women, Infant and Children (WIC) services 
  • Reproductive health services (well-women visits, birth control and family planning services,  testing and treatment for sexually transmitted infections, PrEP) 
  • Childhood and adult vaccinations  

For more information or questions, contact Lauren Simmons at 541-447-5165.
