AGH launches new website

Atlantic General Hospital and Health System launched a new, mobile responsive website this week as part of their continued mission of providing access to quality care, personalized service and education to improve individual and community health.

In its twenty-two years of service to the residents and visitors of Berlin and the surrounding community, Atlantic General Hospital and Health System has seen much growth and continues to evolve to provide the right path to good health. With the 5 Rights of the hospital’s 2020 Vision 5-Year Strategic Plan in mind – Right Care, Right Place, Right People, Right Partners, Right Hospital ­– the new www.atlanticgeneral.org provides an improved tool for finding health care providers, health education opportunities, and information for truly coordinated care.

Some enhancements include:

Engaging Design
Updated graphic elements and an intuitive website structure help site visitors quickly find what they need.

Community Calendar
The improved calendar of events will continue to list our ongoing support groups, health screenings and other community events of interest. Online registration will be offered in the near future for those events that require pre-registration.

Improved Form Functionality
Forms for online bill pay and donations to the Foundation are enhanced and will operate whether on a mobile device or desktop computer. The job application process has been improved as well.

Device Responsiveness
The layout of the website will shift to preserve legibility and ease of navigation, regardless of the device – desktop computer, tablet or smartphone – on which it is being accessed.

Updated Physician Directory, Locations and Services Listings
Content features allow for posting of secondary locations for provider practices as well as board certifications, fellowship training, links to videos and, in the near future, the capability to email providers’ offices to request more information or an appointment.

Searchable Library of Health Information, Quizzes and Recipes
A wealth of content to improve health literacy and understanding of what it takes to be healthy, including recipes for quick, healthy meal planning.
