A home page redesign can really help your web site - an example for Saint Margaret Mercy

Saint Margaret Mercy Healthcare Centers hired TBH Creative to design a fresh look for their current web site without undergoing a full redesign and recoding process. They wanted to make a strong impact and better utilize the space on their home page as a 'starter' project with their 2009 budget, and we gladly accepted the job and challenge. The original home page was outdated, had no structure, and was very inflexible to display important new information. Our goal was to add organization to the page and a couple areas for future information to be posted -- in addition to a stronger overall visual appeal.

After several iterations, below is the revised home page which launched today.

The top right area pulls fresh news from their blog, the top area shows various photos with subtle movement, and interactive tools fall down the left column. The main content area highlights important services and their prestigious awards from Healthgrades. The right column will be used for upcoming announcements and events.

About Saint Margaret Mercy Healthcare Centers Saint Margaret Mercy is one of the largest acute-care hospitals in Northwest Indiana. It has two campuses -- one in Hammond and another in Dyer, Indiana -- offering all private inpatient rooms. They also have more than 20 off-site facilities, including a 9,000-member health club in Schererville, Indiana.
