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.
In stroke care, it’s not just how well you treat a patient, but also how fast.
We have a Joint Commission Certified Comprehensive Stroke Center.
What’s that mean for you? Our doctors have the specialized equipment and proven skills to provide first-response care for stroke victims. Within minutes of arriving at Palmetto General Hospital, we can diagnose strokes as either ischemic or hemorrhagic and then provide fast treatment that prevents clots from causing any further damage.
A designation that matters
This designation has real-world implications for you. When it comes to stroke, good enough doesn’t cut it, and that’s why we’re proud to be recognized as a leader in stroke treatment.
Having a stroke at age 21 is an unusual—and frightening—prospect. First responders recommended the Palmetto General ER, and our doctors went to work via a FaceTime call before she even arrived at our door.
