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.
More than caring for our patients, we are committed to making sure patients feel cared for. In addition to excellent medical care, that means receiving a comprehensive suite of services, resources, and amenities. From newspaper service and free WiFi to our chaplains and interpreters, we dedicate ourselves to creating a comfortable and helpful atmosphere for you so you can see the best results.
Our chaplains are available 24 hours a day, 7 days a week, to offer prayer, spiritual guidance and support to patients and family members. Talk to your nurse to request chaplain services.
Brookwood Baptist Health provides language interpreters by phone for all foreign language speaking patients and family members. During your stay, ask a nurse or patient care giver for interpreter assistance.
For the Hearing Impaired
For the hearing impaired—we provide sign language services. Your nurse or patient caregiver can make the proper arrangements to accommodate your needs.
Mail and Newspapers
Our volunteers deliver newspapers and patient mail every day. Letters and parcels that arrive after you have been discharged are sent back to the sender.
Wireless internet is available in patient rooms, the cafeteria, and waiting areas throughout the hospital. Patients and visitors are welcome to use their personal laptops, tablets, and phones.
Brookwood Baptist Health hospitals are non-smoking facilities. Smoking is not allowed on any hospital campus.
Special Needs at Discharge
There are occasions when patients need additional treatment or care after they are discharged from the hospital. Please contact Case Management or your nurse if you need assistance with discharge planning, including home health care, outpatient rehab or other therapies.
After you have been discharged, a member of our hospital staff will assist you to the car.
Wheelchairs are available on all nursing units. Please ask a member of our hospital staff for assistance if a wheelchair is needed.
