Foreign ways and war scars test Minneapolis hospital

Hennepin County Medical Center, a complex in downtown Minneapolis, offers a vantage point on the ways immigrants are testing the American medical establishment.

Hennepin spends $3 million a year on interpreters fluent in 50 languages to communicate effectively with its foreign-born patients.
