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.

You’re not alone

Epilepsy is a disorder of the brain that can cause temporary confusion, staring spells, uncontrollable jerking motions of the arms and legs, and unconsciousness. If you or a loved one is suffering from epilepsy or seizures, our new Epilepsy Program is designed to help you regain control of your life.

In addition to offering diagnostics and electroencephalograms (EEGs), we are the first in Palm Beach County to have a dedicated Epilepsy Monitoring Unit (EMU) for patients in need of further assessment. The unit employs skilled technologists and a core nursing staff committed to providing the best possible inpatient monitoring experience. 

Our EMU is equipped with Long-Term Video Monitoring, a specialized form of an EEG in which the patient is continuously monitored on video while brainwave activity is recorded. It allows physicians to: 

  • Identify the onset triggers for seizures
  • Differentiate epileptic events from psychogenic seizures
  • Establish the specific type of epilepsy 

The video captured with this testing can be used to detect epileptic activity not detectable in routine EEGs and can be critical for the diagnosis of epilepsy.
