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.
In Neurotrauma cases, time is of the essence; delays in care could lead to permanent brain damage, paralysis, or even death. The Trauma Center at Delray Medical Center understands the importance of time and offers neurotrauma care 24/7 every day of the
Delray Medical Center is one of the two state designated Trauma Centers in Palm Beach County. Our center partners with the Palm Beach County Healthcare District and area Emergency Medical Service (EMS) professionals to provide lifesaving
emergency and trauma services to our community.
Injuries to the central nervous system resulting in traumatic brain injury (TBI) or spinal cord injury (SCI) are the types of injury most likely to result
in lifelong disability or death. Each year in the United States, about 1.7 million people sustain a traumatic brain injury and 11,000 new spinal cord injuries occur.
For any type of suspected injury to the brain or spinal cord, patients are quickly evaluated. Prior to the patient’s arrival, our trauma team works with EMS professionals in order to receive critical information on the patient’s condition.
This information allows our center and team to have specific evaluation and treatment options available upon the patient’s arrival.
The interdisciplinary team approach integrates some of the latest medical, surgical and rehabilitative therapies. The neuro trauma team consists of trauma physicians and surgeons, neurosurgeons, neurologists, critical care and internal medicine
physicians, specialized nurses and therapists, and rehabilitation professionals.
