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.

“As a physician and member of the Detroit community, I have paid close attention to the Detroit Medical Center’s commitment to the residents of Detroit. While there have been significant changes in ownership and leadership
over the years, facets of the DMC that have remained consistent and apparent are its ever-present focus on community outreach and providing access to all. I have also been pleased with how DMC oversees its efforts to continually improve
itself in areas such as patient safety and quality and its intense desire to achieve good patient outcomes by applying industry best practices. Through the years, it has been my sincere pleasure to work directly with DMC leadership
on efforts to collaborate with community-based focus groups, advisory councils, its board members and the region’s business leaders. To me, these actions demonstrate DMC’s strong and enduring commitment to Detroit and the
communities it serves.”
