The Ohio State University Wexner Medical Center complies with applicable federal civil rights laws and does not discriminate, exclude, or treat people differently on the basis of race, color, national origin, age, disability or sex. Title IX of the Education Amendments of 1972 and Section 1557 of the Affordable Care Act protect both women and men from discrimination on the basis of sex (including, but not limited to sexual harassment, sexual abuse, and/or sexual assault) and are among the civil rights laws which protect students, employees, patients, and other individuals.

The Ohio State University Wexner Medical Center provides free aids and services to people with disabilities to communicate effectively with us, such as qualified sign language interpreters and written information in other formats (large print, audio, accessible electronic formats and other formats). We also provide free language services to people whose primary language is not English, such as qualified interpreters and information written in other languages. If you need these services, please tell us at the time you schedule an appointment, tell a member of your care team or contact Interpreter Services at 614-293-3369 (TTY: 614-688-8605).
