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.

Emergency Room Services

Clinical Decision Unit

The Clinical Decision Unit at Palmetto General is an observation area that provides ongoing patient care, short-term treatment, diagnostic testing, and assessment. Observation services are commonly ordered for patients who enter the Emergency Department and who require more time for the physician to determine if they need additional inpatient treatment or may be safely discharged. This new unit will help support the hospital's emergency services and the efficient care transition of patients as they are assessed and potentially admitted.

Advanced Cardiovascular Services

Your heart is your engine. If it stops working properly, you feel exhausted, uncomfortable and frustrated. You could even land in the emergency room with a heart attack. But getting your heart in shape is easier than you might think. The right heart treatments can vastly improve your quality of life, helping you breathe easier, move faster and feel younger. Here are a few of our advanced heart and vascular services:
  • Abdominal Aortic Aneurysm
  • Endovascular Aneurysm Repair
  • Endovenous Laser Ablation
  • Endovenous Radio Frequency Ablation
  • Peripheral Vascular Surgery
  • Minimally Invasive Heart Valve Surgery
