It’s really great to see more and more people blogging about healthcare. There is so much good information to read out there. Today I found a really well done blog for hospitals. It’s well written and has a nice design. I was a little disappointed with the navigation for their blog. It only shows one article at a time and it took me a minute to find out how to go to the other blog posts.

I think it’s a great idea for a hospital to blog. I think the best reason to blog is as a marketing and PR tool. A blog is a great way to interact with your customers. It gives you a perfect forum to discuss issues with your customers and get feedback. It’s also a great place to clear up any misconceptions about your hospital. I also love it as a place to announce changes and improvements that hospitals have made.
