Non-Discrimination Policy

Non-Discrimination Policy Under The Americans With Disabilities Act

In accordance with the requirements of Section 504 of the Rehabilitation Act of 1973 and Title II of the Americans with Disabilities Act of 1990, Citizens Medical Center (Medical Center), including its HealthPlex and Kidz-N-Motion programs, does not exclude, deny benefits to, or otherwise discriminate against any individual on the basis of disability in admission to, participation in, or receipt of the services and benefits under any of its programs or activities, whether carried out by the Medical Center directly or through a contractor or any other entity with which the Medical Center arranges to carry out its program or activities. The Medical Center makes reasonable modifications in policies, practices, or procedures when such modifications are necessary to afford equal access to its services, programs, and activities. The Medical Center will not exclude any individual from the full and equal enjoyment of its services and facilities because of the individual’s association with a person with a disability.

Grievances alleging that a Medical Center service, program, or activity is not accessible to persons with disabilities should be directed to the Compliance Officer at (361) 574-1703. Filing a grievance with the ADA/Section 504 Coordinator does not prevent the applicant, resident, and/or his family member or guardian from filing a complaint with the:
