Julio Perfetti

Creating Connections

Medical interpreters like Julio Perfetti play a vital role in making sure that our patients facing language barriers receive the best, most respectful care possible. Julio is the Interpreter Service Supervisor at Whittier Clinic, a neighborhood clinic owned by Hennepin County Medical Center. As a medical interpreter, Julio creates a bridge between patients and providers. Without an interpreter, patients and providers who speak different languages have a tough time getting through an encounter, and are especially challenged to come to an understanding about the plan of care. Julio’s presence is essential, but Julio himself says that a successful encounter is one in which he is almost invisible. He strives to connect patients and providers so completely that they don’t even remember that he is there.
