UF&Shands introducing new joint website, new look for old sites

Roll out the red carpet, Internet. Because is about to arrive.

Last year, UF&Shands launched an initiative to rebuild its presence on the Web. The goal? A patient-focused Web presence that serves our core missions, supports the UF&Shands strategic plan and makes current pages easier to use and more consistent.

The UF&Shands Web services teams have begun to introduce new websites for our Gainesville and Jacksonville campuses. More than 80 Academic Health Center websites have transitioned to the new website theme. Examples of recently launched websites include the College of Public Health and Health Professions,, and the Student Health Care Center,

Phase 2 of implementation is currently under way. It will include the launch of the new website, This website will represent our overall system and act as a front door for our patients, students, faculty and other audiences.

The new website will make it easier for the public to learn about health conditions, see what treatments we provide, learn who our health care providers are, find where they can receive treatment and access what research opportunities are available for them.

By the end of 2012, most major UF&Shands websites should be converted or in the process of conversion to the new integrated site.
