West Columbia, SC – Lexington Medical Center’s newly redesigned website, www.lexmed.com, has won three prestigious national awards that honor the best hospital websites in the country.
The first award is “Best Redesigned Website” from Greystone.Net and StayWell Custom Communications Best in Class Awards. Panelists reviewed 150 entries from across the country, narrowed them to a list of 50 finalists and created an online ballot. Results of the online voting helped to determine the final winners.
The second and third awards are from Strategic Health Care Communications eHealthcare Leadership Awards. In a pool of 1,300 entries from a wide range of health care organizations around the nation, Lexington Medical Center’s website won “Best Overall Internet Site” and “Best Site Design.” An independent panel of judges familiar with health care and the Internet evaluated each entry. In the Best Overall Internet Site category, judges were looking at the delivery of strong health content, interactivity, medical care support, integration with the organization’s operations, strength of Web design and ease of navigation. In the Best Site Design category, judges were looking for unusual, attractive and engaging sites with easy access to key site information and strong branding.
Lexington Medical Center unveiled its newly redesigned website one year ago. Both state-of-the-art and user friendly, www.lexmed.com includes features such as a Doctor Directory that allows users to search for a physician by name or specialty and Health Information Library with information on numerous medical conditions. The website also features photographs of actual Lexington Medical Center employees and patients.
