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.

Visiting Clergy Procedures

DMC Sinai-Grace Hospital

DMC Sinai-Grace Hospital welcomes and encourages visits from patients’ clergy. We recognize that the support provided by trusted faith leaders to those who are hospitalized is essential to the healing process. We will do whatever we can to facilitate your ministry when you come to visit. However, we ask that you follow our established guidelines listed below:

Badges

Visiting clergy members are required to wear a Visiting Clergy ID badge every time they are in the hospital.

Procedure to obtain a badge and courtesy parking pass:

  1. Complete an Application Form (contact Doris Montgomery at dmontgom@dmc.org or call (313) 966-3452)
  2. Return the application to the Spiritual Care Services office for authorization, located in the Lourdes Building, Room L-338.
  3. Take your authorization form to the Parking and Badging Office in Human Resources, located on the 1st floor of the Lourdes Building.
  4. A picture ID badge will be furnished which will provide access to the DMC Sinai-Grace visitor parking lot.
  5. Please park in the visitor's lot and enter through the front lobby.

Visiting Procedures

Please learn the visitation guidelines for each hospital unit. These have been developed to protect our patients from infection and stress and to ensure a restful, healing environment. While patients are in the hospital, their medical care is our top priority.

Visits to some patients are restricted for infection control or other reasons. We will maintain privacy and confidentiality for them. Some restrictions are essential for compliance with state and federal safety and privacy regulations. Exceptions to visitation regulations may be made only at the discretion of the patient, nursing staff, and security personnel.

The Visiting Clergy Badge is a privilege offered in good faith under the assumptions that the minister will visit only members of his or her congregation. The minister will maintain professional conduct appropriate to the role. Any breach of this understanding may lead to revocation of this privilege.

When You Have a Concern

Contact the Patient Relations Department on the 1st floor of Sinai-Grace Hospital, or call (313) 966-4565. Spiritual Care Services can be contacted at (313) 966-3452, or by paging (313) 745-0203, pager #5861. There is a chaplain on call in the hospital generally Monday through Friday 8 a.m. - 4 p.m.

Thank you for your cooperation and understanding so that, together, we can provide the best care for your patients.
