Froedtert & MCW Website Accessibility
The Froedtert & MCW health network is also committed to providing access to our websites for individuals with disabilities in accordance with Section 508 of the Rehabilitation Act. Section 508 requires us to ensure that those with disabilities who are seeking information or services from us have access to and use of information and data that is comparable to the access and use by members of the public who are not individuals with disabilities unless it would impose an undue burden on us. To meet this commitment, our web pages have been designed with the goal of meeting or exceeding the Section 508 standards.
If you have any concerns about our ability to accommodate you or the format of any material on our web pages interferes with your ability to access the information, please contact us through the following website: FroedtertHotline.EthicsPoint.com.
We will review the information you submitted and respond as appropriate. Please let us know the nature of the accessibility problem and the web address and/or website materials where you encountered the problem.
