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.
Compassionate Care for a Healthy, Happy Road Ahead
Following the delivery of your baby, you will receive visits from an obstetrician, anesthesiologist, pediatrician and other members of your medical team who will check on your recovery. Your nurse will answer questions and discuss what to expect during
the proceeding hours, days and weeks, including information on pain management and self-care throughout recovery.
Piedmont Medical Center offers the “couplet care” approach through which one nurse provides care for both mom and her new baby, so new mothers always have easy access to updates on the health of their babies.

Piedmont Medical Center is proud to offer an OB/GYN physician laborist program in which a board-certified OB/GYN is available onsite 24/7, ready to care for soon-to-be mothers experiencing premature labor and other urgent medical situations. For any mother-to-be,
it’s comforting to know that expert care is available close to home, even during life’s most unexpected moments.

Infant Security: You and Your Baby Can Sleep Peacefully Knowing You’re Safe and Sound
Piedmont Medical Center utilizes a technologically advanced security system to monitor your newborn’s safety. Upon delivery, your baby will wear a special bracelet to monitor your baby’s location at all times. Access to the women’s tower
is restricted, limiting individuals on this unit. In addition, Piedmont Medical Center operates closed circuit cameras throughout our hospital to provide additional security of each patient.
