Nevin Fahmii is the first concierge to be hired by CHOP International Medicine. As the Arabic concierge, she plays a vital role in facilitating the cultural needs of international families, from their first interactions with The Children's Hospital of Philadelphia through the entire treatment cycle at the hospital. Nevin tours the facility with new families and helps them become familiarized with the resources that are available to them. She also addresses issues they encounter, from accommodations to restaurants, mosques, entertainment, shopping and banking. Not only does Nevin educate the families by keeping them informed of hospital protocols but also helps to educate providers about the culture and traditions of families from the Gulf. This information enables The Children's Hospital of Philadelphia to deliver culturally sensitive and tailored care, making families feel most welcomed throughout their stay.
