Maria Regalado | KCHC
Maria Regalado, Certified Spanish Medical Interpreter

 

About Me:

 

I am a Certified Spanish Medical Interpreter, and this is my first position as a Medical Interpreter. With Spanish being my first language, I couldn’t think of a better way to give back to my community than to literally give people a voice and help them better understand their medical appointments and assist with removing the language barrier.

 

Why did you choose to work for Kenosha Community Health Center, Inc.?

 

I chose to work at Kenosha Community Health Center because I have been a consistent patient here since I came to the United States at eight-years-old. My family has relied on KCHC for medical and dental appointments and we’ve never been let down. I’ve been blessed to have the opportunity to be able to provide my services while understanding our population and what their needs are.

 

Education/ Qualification Background:  
I was certified as a Spanish Interpreter through Alta Language, and I couldn’t have been better prepared for my position here. I also have a background in Personal Training and Nutrition through International Sports Science Association and currently studying Surgical Technology at Gateway Technical College.

 

Practice Location:
I work out of the 22nd location, in Kenosha,  unless needed in the other clinics.

 

Brief description of how you assist patients and providers:
I interpret for medical appointments so that patients and providers can better communicate with each other and there are no missing pieces or questions about the patient’s health. I also interpret for behavioral health appointments which has really helped us expand our behavioral health department’s effectiveness in our Hispanic population. I also assist our RNs get important messages to patients over the phone.

Do not wait to schedule your appointment.

Kenosha Community Health Center has many appointment options in Kenosha and Silver Lake to meet your needs.
