The Edith Wolfson Medical Center Department of Obstetrics and Gynecology web site was born in September, 2001. With the decision to build a web site, we began the hard work of defining and designing the site and gathering material.
We planned our site first and foremost to meet the needs of the community at large, but physicians, nurses and other medical staff will also find much of interest.
The goals of our web site are to bring up-to-date, relevant and trustworthy information to members of the community interested in the many varied facets of modern obstetrics and gynecology; and to provide a glimpse of our department and our hard working, dedicated staff to the public. Our students will also find their study syllabus, schedules, and lectures for their gynecology rotation posted on our site. They’ll be able to use these for advance preparation and independent study. Those in public at large who are interested can also access this information.
Our staff has its own, password protected area of the site. Here the staff can find on-call schedules and general announcements, alongside meeting notes, lecture notes, reports of academic activities and professional information.
We chose the Israeli company, Daronet, which specializes in web design and security. Daronet’s extensive experience with web design and programming combined with our web committee’s vision brought about the creation of this web site as it appears today. The site is built using the latest web technology and innovation.
The Gal team company, with Udi Gal at its head, and using the talents of Ginadi Litioga, developed a virtual tour of our labor and delivery suites and gynecology ward using advanced photographic technology.
Our staff contributes to the content of the site with clear, easy to read articles in Hebrew, English Arabic and Russian. Some of our senior physicians head advisory committees for the site and help to maintain its high professional standard.
Our website was launched in December, 2001, and currently contains, in addition to articles and answers to frequently asked questions (FAQs), an open forum for questions and exchange of thoughts and ideas; links to recommended related sites; a listing of recommended events related to women’s health; a “users club” that allows those interested to receive information and updates via e-mail; and many other departments.
An abbreviated version of our site is available in English, Arabic and Russian. We will continue to update these in the future. A medical humor section can also be found in our site...
We hope that all those who visit this site will find it interesting and engaging. I’d be delighted to receive any and all feedback and suggestions.
