The Web Marketing Association showcases the best web and mobile sites in 96 industry categories ranging from automotive and academia to healthcare and entertainment as part of the annual WebAward Competition.
Founded by the Web Marketing Association in 1997, the WebAwards set industry benchmarks for today’s best websites based on seven criteria: design, ease of use, copywriting, interactivity, use of technology, innovation, and content.
“Honestly, we’re blown away to have our work on the McLeod Health mobile website judged as the best in the nation. Of course, we thought it was pretty awesome ourselves, but to have high caliber judges from all over world actually name it as the best mobile site in the nation kind of takes our breath away,” said Andy Lesnik, president and CEO of LHWH. “LHWH kudos go especially to Pat Harris, our creative director, and Dana McDonald, our chief technology officer, for their brilliant work. And, special thanks to our long-time client, McLeod Health, for empowering us to deliver such a high-end product. The new McLeod Health website has now won numerous national awards, including Outstanding Website from the Web Marketing Association’s Internet Advertising Awards earlier this year.”
“We designed McLeodHealth.org with 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,” said Pat Harris, creative director at LHWH. “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.”
