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.
It's also important to consider how ready you are to make a change. Every weight loss procedure requires you to commit to a lifetime of healthy eating and regular exercise. Ask the weight-loss specialists at Baptist for an opinion on your options and
know that we’re here for you, every step of the way.
“I would go to a party or event and always look to see if I was the largest person in the room,” says Dora, a Baptist bariatric surgery patient who began her journey at 257 pounds. Since having the surgery, she says, “The best thing
is your confidence. You can now go anywhere and not feel that people are staring at you … Whatever you want to do, you just feel that you can do it.”
