Accessibility Statement

We are committed to providing a website that is accessible to the widest possible audience. To do so, we are actively working with consultants to update the website by increasing its accessibility and usability by persons who use assistive technologies such as automated tools, keyboard-only navigation, and screen readers.

We are working to have the website conform to the relevant standards of the Section 508 Web Accessibility Standards developed by the United States Access Board, as well as the World Wide Web Consortium's (W3C) Web Content Accessibility Guidelines 2.1. These standards and guidelines explain how to make web content more accessible for people with disabilities. We believe that conformance with these standards and guidelines will help make the website more user friendly for all people.

Our efforts are ongoing. While we strive to have the website adhere to these guidelines and standards, it is not always possible to do so in all areas of the website. If, at any time, you have specific questions or concerns about the accessibility of any particular webpage, please contact WebsiteAccess@tenethealth.com so that we may be of assistance.

Thank you. We hope you enjoy using our website.

Community

Connected to the community that lives in our hearts.

RiverwalkersMore than 11,000 Detroit Medical Center employees call the Detroit metropolitan area home. Their contributions to our local and regional economies continue to play a key role in Detroit’s renewal. In the last four years, DMC has completed more than $850 million in new hospital construction, expansion and renovation to benefit patients, families and staff. On the Midtown campus, in addition to the Heart Hospital, patients, visitors and families are already finding new comfort and convenience in the ongoing beautiful transformation of the Harper/Hutzel Hospitals entrance, lobby, patient registration and pharmacy areas. The breathtaking new Children’s Hospital of Michigan Specialty Tower has taken shape and will house the latest in pediatric critical care. DMC’s care for patients and families extends beyond the walls of its eight hospitals and institutes and 80-plus outpatient facilities. Our community involvement ranges from wellness and health education to programs for youth, seniors and families in need.

DMC is proudly partnered with the Detroit Police Athletic League (Detroit PAL) in its efforts to build character in youth through sports and mentoring. Every Tuesday and Thursday, from June through August, you can find more than 2,000 seniors on the Detroit Riverfront, for the DMC’s RiverWalkers program. This initiative gives seniors a safe, outdoor atmosphere where they can exercise, socialize and gain valuable health information. Our more than 3,000 nurses and affiliated physicians are the heart of our commitment to compassionate care for the community we love.
