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.

Scheduling & Visitor Restrictions

Tenet Health Central Coast remains open to care for patients who require in-person visits and time-sensitive care. Adjustments to scheduled procedures and appointments will be made as requested by the physician, patient or as required by local or national public health authorities. Thank you for understanding our need to take these measures for the safety of all.

Visitor Restrictions

Tenet Health Central Coast is committed to taking the necessary and critical steps to ensure that patients and staff in our hospitals are safe and remain healthy. To help prevent the spread of COVID-19, the following visitor restrictions and limitations have been implemented:

  • We are under a no visitors policy to ensure the safety of our patients and staff during this time
  • Exceptions:
    • Labor & Delivery, Postpartum and Pediatric patients are allowed one designated visitor
    • NICU patients are allowed two designated visitors
    • End-of-Life Patients, Patients with Physical, Intellectual, and/or Developmental Disabilities and Cognitive Impairments, and some emergency department patients

All individuals entering our hospitals will be screened for fever and respiratory symptoms upon entry per CDC guidelines, provided a mask and required to perform hand hygiene. The mask should be worn at all times while in the facility.

Alternative means of communications between families and patients, such as virtual visitations, Skype, FaceTime, etc. are encouraged.

These measures will be in effect until we are advised that it is safe to return to normal visiting practices. We are committed to keeping our patients, our staff and our community safe. We appreciate your support and understanding during this time.

 

Restrictions for Hospital Entry/Exit

We are limiting hospital entry points to facilitate employee, physician, visitor and vendor screening and community safety.



An exception to any limited visitation policy at the hospital is patients with disabilities who require support from family members or staff in order for them to effectively communicate with medical personnel or otherwise receive equal access to medical treatment.
