Port Huron, MI -- McLaren Port Huron has been nationally recognized with several eHealthcare Leadership awards. The hospital’s website, www.porthuronhospital.org, was recognized during the Sixteenth Annual Healthcare Internet Conference held November 12-14, 2012, in Las Vegas.
McLaren Port Huron was recognized with a Gold award for Best Overall Internet Site and a Silver award in the following categories: Best Design; Best Physician Directory; and Best Interactive Website.
“These awards acknowledge that we are on target with national best practices in our efforts to make health-related information available to our community.” says Leslie Boulier, digital marketing specialist at McLaren Port Huron. “We want everyone to know they can come to our website 24/7/365 when they need information about a health condition, hospital service or for general information about one of the doctors on our medical staff.”
This is the third year that McLaren Port Huron’s website has received an eHealthcare Leadership Award. In 2010, it was recognized in the Best Overall Internet Site classification. The website was recognized in the Best Physician Directory classification in 2011. These awards highlight the Internet’s role in achieving an organization’s business objectives and recognize the hard work that has gone into creating outstanding health Web sites.
Over 240 health care organizations, representing a broad industry spectrum, received recognition for their outstanding websites and digital communications at a special presentation in Las Vegas. Winners were selected from nearly 1,100 entries.
The judges looked at how the website and other digital communications compared with others in their organization’s classification. They also reviewed entries based on a proprietary multi-point standard of Internet excellence. The best overall Internet site category, for example, had to qualify on more than 40 factors.
McLaren Port Huron’s website includes information about the hospital and its healthcare partners, a calendar of classes and events, a directory of the physicians on staff and health information and videos created with input and protocols of physicians worldwide.
