Oakwood web site honored for quality, design

For the sixth consecutive year, Oakwood's external web site has been honored for its quality and design.

The site, which has been recognized for excellence since 2004, won awards this fall for Outstanding Achievement in Web Development from The Web Marketing Association and earned a gold place in web design from eHealthcare Leadership Awards.

“We are very gratified that our efforts were recognized,” said Dave Stanis, Oakwood’s director of digital communications. “Patients know we care because we meet their healthcare needs online. Receiving these industry awards lets us know we’ve successfully done that. 

The eHealthcare Leadership Awards is the industry’s most reputable award recognition program. More than 1,300 hospitals, health systems, medical practices and other health-based organizations were reviewed. The web sites were rated based on a standard of Internet excellence and how they compared with others in their group classification.

“In this digital age, providing best-in-class website access is vital. Creating an easy-to-use platform with tools provided by our partners, CareTech and Xby2, Inc., allows Oakwood to publish reliable content with easy access to critical applications and a user-friendly design,” Stanis added.
