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.

Hyperbaric Medicine

The Hyperbaric Center at St. Mary’s Medical Center is equipped with the technology and specially-trained team necessary to treat the full spectrum of emergency conditions and chronic illnesses. Our hyperbaric chambers are accessible 24/7 in the event of an emergency, and are available during normal business hours for elective care.

Patients can sit upright or recline comfortably while reading or watching a movie as they undergo treatment in one of our multi-place chambers. If necessary, accommodations can be made for patients on stretchers. A nurse, respiratory therapist or paramedic trained in hyperbaric medicine remain in attendance at all times and communicate with a hyperbaric physician as needed. If needed, a trained professional can enter the chamber and quickly be at the patient’s side.

Should you have questions or would like to refer a patient for treatment, please call us at (561) 882-2852.

Hyperbaric oxygen therapy is used to treat a variety of conditions, including:

  • Radiation injury
  • Chronic refractory osteomyelitis
  • Compromised skin flaps and grafts
  • Crush injuries
  • Decompression sickness
  • Gas embolism
  • Carbon monoxide poisoning
  • Gangrene
For a free physician referral, please call (561) 841-KIDS (5437).
