The State Hospital has a new front door, at least on the Internet. Cory Nelson and Jesse Lewis spearheaded the effort to update the hospital’s homepage. Jesse worked with Gannon Wegner to punch out the project. The new landing page makes it a lot easier to find hospital info- everything from patient and family info, to employment opportunities, fact sheets, visitation hours and how to submit complaints and suggestions for better operation. It’s even easier to find this week since Jeff Burgess gave it top slot in the rotating photos on our homepage – maybe the first time the hospital’s been featured like that! Thanks to all of you for your hard to work to make it happen.
