Northwest & Northeast Arkansas Families Can Find Important Health Resources on Revamped Centers for Children Website
LITTLE ROCK, AR. (Aug. 19, 2013) — For parents of kids in northwest and northeast Arkansas, finding the best pediatric health information will now be easier with a newly revamped website for the Arkansas Children's Hospital (ACH) and University of Arkansas for Medical Sciences (UAMS) Centers for Children, a network with facilities located in Lowell and Jonesboro.
The redesign of the site, centersforchildren.org, will provide greater convenience in navigation and usability for visitors and families with information from referring physicians of ACH and UAMS.
The Centers for Children offer pediatric subspecialty care for families throughout Arkansas, with convenient locations that administer clinic visits and follow-up medical care. These sites give services to patients ranging from infants to young adults, from initial diagnosis to follow-up care. With the collaboration of ACH and UAMS, families are able to experience quality care closer to home.
The site centersforchildren.org displays a number of new and colorful features. The site's scalable design supports the addition of new locations and includes important content such as health library topics, news and appointment information, which can be elevated to the homepage. The Centers' initiatives are supported through the site and new navigation structure enables visitors to quickly find clinic locations.
"With a new look, feel and design, the Centers for Children website will offer greater access and easier navigation for visitors," said ACH Director of Communications Dan McFadden, APR. "This upgrade will help parents more easily find information they are looking for and ways in which their child can receive excellent care for their medical needs closer to home in northeast or northwest Arkansas."
