Carolinas Healthcare Public Relations and Marketing Society (CHPRMS) has awarded Cornerstone Pediatric and Adolescent Medicine in Cary, NC as this year’s winner of the prestigious Wallie Award for Best Website. Cornerstone’s new website was created by medical website design agency, WhiteCoat in Raleigh, NC.
Cornerstone Pediatrics’ website (www.cornerstonepediatrics.org) underwent a massive redesign in the summer of 2012 to make the site more functional, educational and accessible to patients. The new website features an interactive symptom checker, the ability to request appointments online, a convenient online survey for patients, an integrated Facebook feed, and a fresh new look to elevate the practice’s brand. In today’s world of computer savvy families, we felt it was important to have a website that is informative, user-friendly and visually pleasing. We are very happy with the major changes we have made and our families comment positively about them too, says Dr. Brett Wilson of Cornerstone Pediatrics.
The new website was designed by Raleigh-based medical marketing agency WhiteCoat. “So many patients now search for doctors online that having not just a good, but a great website is really an essential part of any medical practice’s marketing strategy”, says Amanda Kanaan, President of WhiteCoat.
