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.
We are not currently taking volunteer applications. Please check back soon.
Volunteers at Shelby Baptist Medical Center give freely of their time, talents, energy, and skills to provide valuable assistance to patients, visitors, and staff. Our volunteers can provide directions at information desks throughout the hospital, serve
in waiting rooms, provide office assistance, deliver mail to patients, and make deliveries from the gift shop, in addition to other special, ongoing projects. The basic process for becoming a volunteer is outlined below, yet there may be differences
in procedure and requirements per facility. Please call us at the numbers below with questions.
