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.
The primary ministry of our hospital chaplains is to provide counseling and support to patients and family members throughout the pathways of illness, injury and recovery. Our chaplains serve in all five Brookwood Baptist Health hospitals. Chaplains make rounds and are on-call throughout the week for patients and families, offering spiritual support as needed. We recognize that our patients come from all walks of life and bring with them a variety of cultural and religious backgrounds. We carefully minister to each individual and are sensitive to the patient's beliefs.
Brookwood Baptist Health chaplains pray for and join in prayer with our patients, their families, and hospital staff. They provide regular worship opportunities in hospital chapels and provide special worship observances for patients who request them.
The spiritual caregivers of Brookwood Baptist Health are here to assist others in finding God's healing love, mercy and grace in the midst of sickness and suffering.
