    Rasmussen United Medical Center is located in a multicultural city and treats patients from a variety of cultural backgrounds. Because of the diversity of patients, a variety of language skills, including nonverbal communication, are involved in creating treatment plans.

With the implementation of this new program, the delivery of healthcare to patients will be enhanced, specifically to those with limited English proficiency and those that are nonverbal.
