UMC Launches New Website: www.umcarizona.org
University Medical Center has launched a new website for patients, visitors, staff and the public at www.umcarizona.org
The new site, which replaces UMC's old website and URL, was designed by MedSeek of Solvang, Calif.
It offers comprehensive information about the hospital's physicians and services, a calendar of events, maps, health hints and links to medical websites. Patients may request an appointment with a UMC physician online. Later this spring, patients will be able to pay their hospital bills or make a donation to the UMC Foundation over the internet through a Bank of America secure interface.
For job seekers, the site provides a listing of current job openings, a description of employee benefits and the opportunity to submit a job application online.
There also are special sections for nurses, physicians and other health care professionals.
"We're still tweaking it and adding content every day," said Patti Redding of UMC's Information Systems Department. Redding, along with Adaline Klemmedson of UMC Administration, headed the website design and implementation effort.
Eventually the site will allow patients to review their itemized hospital bills and make purchases through a virtual UMC Gift Shop, Redding said.
