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.
Palmetto General Hospital’s “Just for Women”™ Diagnostic Centeris a Center of Excellence dedicated to helping women stay ahead of their health care needs. We offer many diagnostic services such as all-digital mammography, ultrasounds and bone densitometry.
We deliver all services in an atmosphere of respect and comfort for women. Every staff member works to provide patient satisfaction in all aspects of our diagnostic care.
Why Digital Mammography?
Digital mammography allows the radiologist to view the image more closely, meaning it is possible to zoom in on suspicious or concerning areas and make immediate decisions about needing additional images.
Both digital and film-screen mammograms uses X-rays to generate images of the breast, yet digital mammograms take less than half the time of traditional exams.
Digital mammograms also allow the radiologist to review the images while the patient is still in the examination room. Digital images are also more portable.
In an effort to accommodate our visitors, Palmetto General Hospital has expanded its parking lots. The front lot has now become patient parking only, and additional parking is available behind the Emergency Department and in the roof garage adjacent to the hospital.
Valet service is available in the front main entrance of the hospital and west campus entrance.
Help honor the women who have given so much to us. We're calling on all moms - and daughters - to protect themselves and their health by getting a digital mammogram.
