Littleton Regional Hospital was among the top three recipients of the Quorum Health Resources (QHR) "Best of the Web" recipients. QHR the nation's largest hospital management company and the 7th largest healthcare consulting firm in the United States recently announced the winners of its 3rd Annual "Best of the Web" Awards. Its 2009 winners included: Huron Regional Medical Center, Huron, South Dakota - www.huronregional.org; North Valley Hospital, Whitefish, Montana - www.nvhosp.org; and Littleton Regional Hospital, Littleton, New Hampshire - www.littletonhospital.org.
According to QHR Web Analyst and Designer Megan Gill, 41 hospitals participated in this year's Web site competition. "Search engine optimization and online features played a big role in this year's judging criteria," she said.
"QHR's 'Best of the Web' Awards were created to increase awareness of what hospitals should strive for in their Web designs, and to challenge both QHR and non-QHR Web designers to make hospital Web sites that are effective marketing tools, as well as strong communication vehicles," added QHR Vice President of Marketing Susan Hassell. "This year's winners demonstrated a clear understanding of how user-friendly and focused Web design can improve hospital patient relations, community outreach, physician recruitment, as well as build awareness of the hospital and its services."
Gail Clark, director of development and community relations at Littleton Regional Hospital stated, "With the help of Veronica Francis of Notchnet in Littleton, LRH launched its new website earlier this year. The enhanced website includes new patient centered features including on-line patient registration, a patient friendly section to guide patients through steps before, during and after their visit to LRH, videos and important health related information, billing and financial assistance information and much more. We are so pleased to be recognized as one of the "Best of the Web" recipients by QHR."
