Woman’s Hospital Website Receives National Recognition
Woman’s Hospital’s website, womans.org, received national recognition at the 2011 eHealthcare Leadership Awards. Out of more than 1,200 entries nationwide, Woman’s received an “Award of Distinction” for Best Integrated Marketing Campaign, for its awareness campaign of Surgical and Colonoscopy Services. Woman’s is the only hospital in Baton Rouge that provides patients with private rooms before and after a colonoscopy.
“Woman’s understands the importance of integrating digital and traditional media communications to reach our community. Our patients are women in all stages of life who consume information from many sources ranging from local print publications to social media,” explains Merri Alessi, Director of Marketing, Public Relations and Physician Relations at Woman’s. In 2011, womans.org focused on enhancing visual interest, improving navigation site and showcasing key service lines. The website increased its number of videos, virtual tours, social media tie-ins and calls-to-action for its specialized service lines.
