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.

Flu Information for Patients & Visitors

Because the DMC takes protecting the health and welfare of our patients seriously we ask that all patients and visitors take some of the same precautions to prevent flu infections as our employees, to include:

  • Limit exposures to people (especially patients) at high risk of flu infection complications such as: People age 65 and older, Pregnant, Children younger than 5 (especially those younger than 2 years old), People of any age who have chronic medical conditions (e.g. diabetes, asthma, congestive heart failure, lung disease, neurological conditions), Native Americans and Alaskan Natives, etc.
  • Receive annual flu vaccination as soon as available (takes up to two weeks for immunity)
  • Wash hands often with soap and water (use alcohol-based hand sanitizer when soap and water not available)
  • Cover mouth and nose during coughs and or sneezes
  • Use single use, disposable tissues when needed

Most People Do Not Require Treatment

Some high-risk patients such as young children, pregnant women, or hospitalized patients may be treated with medications such as Tamiflu or Relenza.
