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.
Children’s Hospital of Michigan is the only hospital in Metropolitan Detroit designated as an accredited center of care for providing high-quality cardiac
care to children with cardiomyopathy. The designation is made by the Children’s Cardiomyopathy Foundation (CCF), a national nonprofit committed to improving the health outcomes and quality of life for children with cardiomyopathy. Cardiomyopathy
is a chronic heart disease that affects how the heart pumps blood through the body. Children’s Hospital of Michigan received this recognition for providing consistent high-quality cardiac care and specialized disease management to
children with cardiomyopathy. Center accreditation is based on self-reported hospital data, which is evaluated on the volume of pediatric cardiomyopathy patients, variety of pediatric patient services offered, expertise in the treatment and management
of cardiomyopathy in children, and affiliation with an academic research institution. Information about CCF’s Accredited Center of Care program and selection criteria is available on CCF’s website.
