In late 2009, to mark the 30th anniversary of North General Hospital’s founding in 1979, Dr. Samuel Daniel, North General’s president and CEO, decided to renew the hospital’s unwavering commitment to the provision of high-quality healthcare and health education in the Harlem community—and to showcase its new clinical services and other enhancements—by re-launching the institution’s web site, www.northgeneral.org.
Concerning the re-launch of the web site, Daniel says, “Our refreshed web site will now allow us to better communicate with our constituents in the Harlem community to ensure that we are keeping our finger on the pulse of what they really need from us in terms of medical care and community outreach.
Now, rather than calling the hospital’s reception desk, they can simply visit our web site to receive relevant information about our services, and communicate with us directly should they have questions, concerns, comments or ideas about future health programming.”
Daniel adds, “To fully meet the informational needs of all of the communities we serve, we will also be unveiling a Spanish-language companion web site in May 2010.”
When asked what he would like people to take away from their North General online experience, Daniel said, “That the new face of North General Hospital has emerged, and we are truly better than ever.”
