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.

NICU (Neonatal Intensive Care Unit)

At Saint Francis Hospital-Memphis, you can take comfort in knowing that we offer a neonatal intensive care unit (NICU), where we can provide high-level care for premature and critically ill babies. Babies that need to go to the NICU are usually admitted within the first 24 hours after their birth, typically because they are born prematurely, show signs of a complication in the first few days of life or have difficulty during their delivery.

Should your baby need intensive care, our neonatologists are on call 24 hours a day, seven days a week, to provide advanced care. Our compassionate, highly skilled NICU staff also includes respiratory therapists, physical therapists and assistance from social workers.
