ROCHESTER, Minnesota — Mayo Clinic has launched its redesigned Arabic website, mayoclinic.org/arabic. The upgraded site offers Arabic speakers an enhanced online experience with easier access to important resources, including details for requesting an appointment, international services and patient testimonies.
"The redesigned site will better serve Arabic-speaking patients and their families who may be considering medical care at Mayo Clinic," says Mikel Prieto, M.D., medical director for international operations. "Access to quality health care is a desire that unites us all worldwide. Mayo Clinic is committed to ensuring that language is not an obstacle to receiving world-class care."
The redesigned website enables patients to request an appointment and obtain information about treatment costs. Visitors can also learn about Mayo Clinic's free international services, including language translation services, available to all patients.
Mayo Clinic Connection, a newsletter for international patients and friends of Mayo Clinic, is published quarterly and available in Arabic. This newsletter showcases clinical specialties, patient stories, research briefs and news bulletins. Mayo Clinic also has a Twitter account @MayoClinicME that people in the Middle East can use to connect with Mayo Clinic.
Journalists can become a member of the Mayo Clinic News Network for the latest health, science and research news and access to video, audio, text and graphic elements that can be downloaded or embedded.
