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 so that we may be of assistance.

Thank you. We hope you enjoy using our website.

Cultural Sensitivity

We understand the needs of a culturally and religiously diverse population, and we are proud of the personalized services offered by the Detroit Medical Center. Our highly trained staff will address your specific needs, and strive to maintain the highest concern for your cultural or religious preferences.  Let us know of any special requests you may have, we will be happy to assist.

Arabic Culture and the DMC

Located a mere 10 miles from our Midtown Detroit campus, the city of Dearborn is home to one of the largest Arabic communities outside of the Middle East. This community offers many bakeries, restaurants, shops, mosques and Islamic centers representing a diverse array of Muslims and Arabic culture from around the world.

We recognize that Arabic culture can require special arrangements for medical procedures, and we have International Services Coordinators dedicated to ensuring you have the most comfortable experience possible during your medical stay with the Detroit Medical Center, including support for religious and cultural customs.

DMC offers dietary options to fit your needs, such as Halal meats, and ensure any cultural requirements for exams are met, such as requesting specific providers for women.
