University of Washington: Harborview Medical Center & Health Sciences Libraries

Harborview Medical Center (HMC) is owned by King County and operated by the University of Washington. One of its missions is to provide care to underserved populations including refugees and immigrants. To serve this group more effectively, HMC maintains a robust interpreter service and the Community House Calls Program. EthnoMed documents the information generated from these programs and supports the work of clinicians by providing an electronic database of information about cultural beliefs, health-care needs and community resources of immigrant communities in Seattle and throughout the United States.
