Exciting news – WCH has made some fresh and functional changes to womenscollegehospital.ca!
Over the past few months, #TeamWCH has been working on quality improvement updates to our hospital website. On Wednesday, August 24, WCH officially implemented new changes to improve accessibility on mobile devices, provide the highest industry standard in security, and to make updating content simple for users.
We’re excited to share these new updates with you, as well as what’s to come.
The updates to the home page were focused on improving accessibly and navigation. The home page now features a more prominent search function, access to information on language settings and is formatted for mobile devices.
Care Program Pages
“Tabs” now organize care program content!
Prior to these changes, pages had a “Side Bar” running on the right-hand side of the page that contained information about clinic locations and contact details. These “Side Bars” were not mobile-friendly and would appear at the bottom of the page when accessing the site from mobile devices. To provide a better user experience, we have implemented “Tabs” to organize the page content. This feature helps improve navigation and breaks up content, so users are not scrolling to find the information they’re looking for.
News & Publications
All WCH updates can now be found under “News & Publications”!
You can now easily search through the WCH news that’s most important to you through the categories:
Events, Heather’s CEO Blog, Media, Newsroom and Publications.
Things To Look Out For
With this transition, you may come across error messages when trying to access old links (i.e., Connect articles, saved bookmarks etc.). It’s possible that the path to a specific page has changed slightly, so please be sure to check the main page navigation for its new location. All content will be migrated over to the new website over the next few weeks, but if there is something specifically that you notice is missing and need urgent access to, please email email@example.com
What’s To Come
One of the most exciting features of the new website is how easily information can be updated on the website. In the coming months, more details will be shared on how this new platform will improve access for teams across the hospital to make timely and accurate changes to web content.
