Children's Hospital launches new website

The Monroe Carell Jr. Children’s Hospital at Vanderbilt has launched a redesigned website this week that will give parents, visitors and health professionals easier access to hospital and health information.

Simplified navigation and optimization for tablets and cell phones offers a faster path to content for desktop and mobile users.

A link for health professionals located in the top navigation bar will lead to frequently used resources.

The design is based on site usage data and feedback from families and hospital staff.

Leading-edge “responsive design” will automatically resize text and change the navigation for better usability on different sized screens, including desktop monitors, cell and smart phones and tablets.

Watch for the new site at http://www.ChildrensHospital.vanderbilt.org.
