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 Can Control 7 of 10 Heart Disease Risks

You’ve probably heard that heart disease is the No. 1 killer in the U.S. Knowing if you’re at risk is a first step. Next, do what you can to reduce or eliminate the risks you can control. And, see a doctor so that you have a medical professional to also keep watch for symptoms and help with medications, if needed.

Risk factors you can’t control

  • Increasing age
  • Family history of early heart disease
  • History of preeclampsia during pregnancy

Conditions or choices you may be able to control

  • High blood pressure
  • High blood cholesterol
  • Diabetes and prediabetes
  • Being overweight or obese
  • Being physically inactive
  • Unhealthy diet
  • Smoking

Women’s risk for heart disease increases after menopause. And for both men and women, the more risk factors you have, the greater risk of heart disease.
