We are pleased to announce that Craig Hospital took home a gold award for Responsive Website Design and a gold award Mobile Website: Responsive Design as part of the 2014 Spring/Fall Web Health Awards. The Web Health Awards are organized by the Health Information Resource Center with the goal of recognizing high-quality digital health resources for consumers and health professionals.

We worked with Craig Hospital earlier this year to redesign their website. Craig Hospital is a world-renowned rehabilitation center located in Denver, CO that focuses exclusively on treating spinal cord injuries and traumatic brain injuries. 

Making the site work well across devices was a critical goal of this redesign. Due to the nature of the individuals who come to Craig Hospital for rehabilitation, many first-time visitors to the site are the loved ones of potential patients who are typically looking at the site on a mobile device while stuck in the ICU. They are dealing with the reality of an incredibly traumatic incident and trying to make difficult decisions about care and treatment. We wanted to ensure that they could easily find the information they needed and hopefully even provide them with a glimmer of hope as they learned more about Craig Hospital. We approached the site design with a strong focus on responsive and are thrilled that Craig Hospital has been recognized with these awards highlighting that aspect of the site.
