A team that understands your needs.

We have extensive experience with the international community and have an entire department to accommodate your needs. Each international patient is assigned a multilingual international services coordinator who will act as your personal healthcare guide and advocate.

Our international services coordinators will:

  • Navigate the complexities of your healthcare needs by coordinating your care.
  • Provide interpretation services, if necessary.
  • Coordinate transportation, lodging and financial arrangements.
  • Help you and family members adjust to daily life away from your home.

Your health is our focus at MedStar Georgetown. We are proud of the relationships we build with our international patients and their families. Our International Services team will be with you every step of the way from your initial consultation through your treatment, recovery and follow-up care.

We invite you to connect with the International Services team. Please call 202-444-1588 or email [email protected].
