WHEELING, W. Va., Oct. 3 /PRNewswire/ -- A new Web site from Northwood Health Systems has won three awards from two organizations.
"This was a five-year development effort in partnership with the best Web designers in West Virginia, New York and Ohio to perfect the application of Web site technology," Northwood President and Chief Executive Officer Pete Radakovich said.
The site, http://www.NorthwoodHealth.com, offers more than 1,000 accredited continuing education courses for health care workers for free, as well as information about Northwood's strategic business model, which turned an almost-bankrupt behavioral health care provider into an organization that is successful financially and consistently delivers high quality care.
Northwood has received the Web Award for Outstanding Achievement in Website Development from the Web Marketing Association, which was founded in 1997 to set a high standard for Internet marketing and World Wide Web development. The competition included 2,300 Web sites from 35 countries.
Among the 26 other health care organizations to receive awards in the contest are: Columbus Children's Hospital, Magellan Health Services, Bloomington Hospital and Detroit Medical Center.
The other two awards came from the National Health Information Awards sponsored by the Health Information Resource Center, a national clearinghouse for consumer health programs and materials. Northwood received two 2006 Silver Awards in the Education Division and Community Organization Division.
Almost 1,000 entries were in the 13th annual competition. Other winners in the latest contest include: the Cleveland Clinic, Blue Cross of California, the Arthritis Foundation, Eli Lilly and Co., and the Mayo Clinic.
