April 10, 2017, Myrtle Beach, S.C.Lesnik Himmelsbach Wilson Hearl Advertising & Public Relations (LHWH) in Myrtle Beach, S.C., received an award for Outstanding Website from the prestigious Web Marketing Association (WMA) for LHWH’S design and development of the new McLeodHealth.org website. LHWH was honored along with an illustrious group of Internet Advertising Competition (IAC) winners that included companies like Starbucks, GEICO and HBO Entertainment. The IAC Awards highlight the best online advertising in 96 industries and nine online formats including online ad, video, mobile, newsletter, email and social media.

LHWH designed McLeodHealth.org to drive brand success in a globally connected world. McLeod Health is a network of seven hospitals with more than 8200 employees that serves South Carolina from the Midlands to the Coast and along the border of North and South Carolina. For McLeod Health’s new site, LHWH developed a high level user experience that places McLeod’s medical excellence at the user’s fingertips on any device. The site is elegantly designed, simple to use and intuitive for patients, employees, and potential new personnel to find what they need.

“For our McLeod Health work to be ranked along with Fortune 500 companies is a professionally satisfying honor. Of all the international web awards shows out there, the Internet Advertising Competition is considered one of the best,” said Pat Harris, creative director at LHWH.

“We designed the McLeod Health website to be one that is experienced, not just viewed. For mobile, our goal was to take full advantage of mobile device features and how users interact with these devices. Using analytics from McLeod Health’s old site, we put all the tools that customers most desired – within a thumb’s reach. Essentially creating a ‘remote control’ for better health, via McLeod Health’s website design and their medical excellence.”

“It’s great to see LHWH ranked with the best agencies in the world,” said Andy Lesnik, president and CEO of LHWH. “McLeodHealth.org is one of a dozen highly customized websites we’ve created recently. It’s been a pleasure to see how strong our team has become in designing websites that stack up with the best websites in the world. It just goes to show that great creative work can originate anywhere in the country, including our very own home town of Myrtle Beach, South Carolina.”
