WY Hospital Website Goes Mobile
Cheyenne Regional Medical Center site has been redesigned to accommodate users with smart phones and tablets.
Cheyenne (WY) Regional Medical Center has redesigned its website to be more mobile-friendly, incorporating recommendations from patients, employees, and community members.
"One major change was to make the new website user-friendly on mobile devices, tablets, and desktop computers," Hillary Hardy, CRMC's webmaster and manager of marketing and communications, said in a media release.
"The information being displayed will adjust to whatever device is being used. This is critical since people access our site using different kinds of devices."
CRMC, a 222-bed facility, is part of the Cheyenne Regional Healthcare System, which serves Southeast Wyoming, Northern Colorado, and Western Nebraska.
"The website is one of the primary ways that community members access information about local physicians, clinics, and hospital services. The new site has been designed to help people more easily find this information," Hardy said.
The medical center incorporated suggestions from patients, community members, and employees to improve the website, including a navigation redesign to make it more intuitive.
The website prominently displays links to the MyChart patient portal, career opportunities, and the hospital's social media options because these areas are popular with users. "We wanted to be sure they were easy to find," Hardy said.
The homepage features a main cover story about a timely topic or event. Currently, the space is dedicated to Women's Heart Month, inviting readers to learn more about heart disease and publicizing a heart health event at the medical center in February.
The section below the main feature highlights patient testimonials. Additional information about the hospital is located farther down the page, along with a "what people are saying" section.
"The website is a reflection of who we are as a health system," Hardy said. "With that in mind, we've designed the new site to be patient-focused, informative, and friendly. "
