Announcement from the WIDHH Interpreting Department about changes to Medical Interpreting Services on Vancouver Island.

Dear members of our Deaf, Hard of Hearing, Interpreting and Medical Services Community on Vancouver Island,

I am Tim Mallach, Head of Interpreting, for the Western Institute for the Deaf and Hard of Hearing (WIDHH). Our Agency is the provider of Medical Interpreting Services (MIS) for BC. For the past several years, services for MIS on the Island has been subcontracted to the Island Deaf and Hard of Hearing Centre (IDHHC) in Victoria. Thank you to IDHHC for their services to the MIS program. We are now planning to transition the services from IDHHC back to WIDHH. This will help to create consistency in services across the entire province.

In about a month’s time, WIDHH will manage MIS for all of BC, including the Island. For now, please continue to contact IDHHC for Medical Interpreting Services. I will let you know when the transition is finished and the date when you can contact WIDHH for MIS on the Island.  We appreciate your patience during this time. Our goal is to continue to improve the MIS program for the province.  Please do not hesitate to contact me with any questions. I can be reached via email tim.mallach@widhh.com or by 905.299.2696.

Tim Mallach
Head of Interpreting
