Saint Agnes Hospital Takes First Place for 150th Anniversary Website

Baltimore, Md. — April 27, 2012

St. Agnes 150th Website

Vitamin® and Saint Agnes Hospital today announced winning first place in the websites and blogs category of the Alfred Knight Awards Competition for Saint Agnes Hospital’s 150th Anniversary website.

The Alfred Knight Awards, conducted by the Maryland Society for Healthcare Strategy and Market Development (MSHSMD), recognizes the best work in the healthcare marketing communications field. This year, the competition was divided into two subcategories of programs and tactics, judged by an independent panel of experts.

The mini site, designed by Vitamin, was developed to help Saint Agnes Hospital celebrate its 150th Anniversary in 2012. It was designed and built as an online companion to the recently opened "Heritage Hallway" exhibition. Much like the exhibition, the single-page, scrolling design of the web site is intended to be experienced as a timeline which chronicles the history of Saint Agnes Hospital from its founding to its present state as a premier teaching hospital in the Baltimore area. As the user scrolls down the page, various JavaScript-enabled effects add depth to the user experience through various animations and interactive callouts.

Saint Agnes Hospital was also recognized by MSHMD for these accomplishments:

  • Award of Excellence, Internal Communications – 1st Place
    Internal Communications to Influence Associate Satisfaction
  • Award of Excellence, Electronic Advertising, Single – 1st Place
