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.

Our History

On July 7, 1962, a group of local physicians opened Doctors Hospital of Modesto to provide healthcare services to the community. To better reflect a full and growing scope of services, it was renamed Doctors Medical Center of Modesto in 1979.

A $72 million expansion in the 2000s allowed Doctors Medical Center to continue to meet the growing healthcare needs of the Central Valley in the areas of trauma, heart care, high-risk obstetrics, neonatal intensive care, neurology and oncology.

Today, Doctors Medical Center provides the Central Valley communities with exemplary medical care and has grown into a dynamic 461-bed facility with more than 2,600 dedicated employees, including many of the finest medical specialists in their fields, providing some of the most advanced technologies and progressive treatment protocols in the country.

Doctors Medical Center is fully accredited by the Joint Commission on Accreditation of Healthcare Organizations, is licensed by the State of California and is an approved provider of benefits for many insurance plans in addition to Medicare and Medi-Cal.
