Cedar Rapids, IA — April 11, 2014 — Geonetric, an online solutions provider for the healthcare industry, developed and launched a new website in collaboration with Waterbury, CT–based Saint Mary’s Health System. The new website allows Saint Mary’s to better promote the quality physicians and services available throughout Greater Waterbury. In addition, the site uses responsive design principles, ensuring Saint Mary’s is able to provide an exceptional user experience for their mobile–savvy patients and visitors.

“The new Web presence allows Saint Mary’s to better promote our health system’s brand and showcase the quality of care available in our community,” said Joe Connolly, Vice President of Community Affairs and Chief Marketing Officer at Saint Mary’s Health System. “Geonetric has been a valued partner in this process and we look forward to collaborating with them to optimize our Web strategy.” 

Saint Mary’s new responsive website is built on Geonetric's VitalSite content management system. The site features tablet–inspired design with large graphic and a horizontal layout. It also has a unique “sticky” navigation that stays in full view regardless of where the visitor is on the page.

Now, users who access the site through a mobile device have the same experience as those on desktop computers, and all the site’s resources, including provider, location and service directories, are easily accessible. The site offers robust calendar and events functionality with a shopping cart that allows visitors to sign up and pay for multiple classes at once. The site also allows visitors to send cheer cards to patients, as well as apply to volunteer, request appointments and contact the hospital to share questions or comments. In addition, the site offers access to a health library through integration with Healthwise, helping Saint Mary’s to meet its goal of becoming a reliable source of health information for the community.
