HATTIESBURG, MS (WDAM) - Patients of Forrest Health are using a new website that went online a few weeks ago.
Forresthealth.org makes it easier to access all hospitals, clinics and services in that system.
Among the features are social media links that travel with the user throughout the site and and a provider directory.
All hospitals in the system, along with the Orthopedic Institute, also have new websites.
And, Forrest General Hospital's website has added new features.
"We have hospitals that are in Columbia and Tylertown and Prentiss and Picayune and then, the Orthopedic Institute here in town, is also a free-standing orthopedic hospital, in-patient facility, so we needed to bring all of those under one website presence, and so, that's what we've done," said Michelle Leslie, director of marketing and communications for Forrest General Hospital.
The new website was launched back on May 12.
