INDIANAPOLIS, IN – CulturaLink, a leading provider of language services, consulting and training to the healthcare industry announced today that it will be relocating major corporate activity to their new headquarters in the Greater Atlanta area. The decision was made to better meet the needs of their growing roster of healthcare clients.
The move is a sign of the growing demands an increasingly diverse patient population is placing on healthcare providers. Studies expect that nearly 88 percent on all population growth between now and 2050 will be comprised of immigrants and their offspring. As a result, healthcare providers are encountering more patients who speak different languages, hold different cultural beliefs and have differing views on the provision of healthcare.
“The growing emphasis for healthcare providers to deliver culturally competent care, and the need for a trusted partner like CulturaLink to aid in that process has increased the demands placed on our organization, Yolanda Robles, co-founder of CulturaLink said. “Our expansion to Atlanta is the perfect opportunity to build upon our commitment to providing exceptional support to our clients across the country.”
The news of expansion comes on the heels of several other newsworthy events that have kept the company in the headlines. Just two months ago, CulturaLink partnered with Mt. Sinai on a mission to Cuba with top healthcare organizations in order to offer their expertise on the delivery of healthcare within the country.
Just a few weeks later, the CulturaLink client won the prestigious award from Diversity Inc. recognizing them as the top hospital in the country for their efforts in diversity and inclusion.
The expansion for CulturaLink is an effort to increase their presence across the country, not simply relocate it. As a result, the organization will still maintain a presence in the Indianapolis area and will explore adding offices in other key markets around the country.
“We’ve enjoyed working and living in the greater Indianapolis area, but realize the opportunities to improve the delivery of our services that Atlanta has to offer,” Richard Gordon, co-founder of CulturaLink said. “Atlanta is a thriving and diverse city that offers many new opportunities for CulturaLink, and we look forward to immersing ourselves in the community and enjoying what Atlanta has to offer.”
CulturaLink partners with healthcare organizations to improve patient care and create an effective, diverse workforce through services focused on diversity, inclusion and cultural competence. They partner with hundreds of healthcare providers with best-in-class consulting along with comprehensive translation and interpretation in more than 200 languages. CulturaLink’s proven approach with partner healthcare organizations has led to optimized healthcare infrastructure and positive changes in both the employee and patient experience.
