Diablo Custom Publishing Produces Sequoia Health Magazine Online for Sequoia Hospital

Walnut Creek, CA – Diablo Custom Publishing (DCP) has created Sequoia Health Magazine, an interactive online magazine, for Sequoia Hospital in Redwood City, California.

Created as an interactive online microsite within the greater web site, Sequoia Health Magazine offers visitors all the content of a print publication, including Feature Stories, Slideshows, and Programs and Events coverage plus Multimedia Extras like video stories and links to Twitter, You Tube, and Facebook social media. A subscriber link enables visitors to be informed of new stories and multimedia content being added to the online magazine site. Sequoia Hospital encourages members to visit the magazine section of their site often to become an active participant in enhancing a healthy lifestyle.

Sequoia Hospital was seeking a way to add dynamic custom local content to their website on a regular basis. Their existing corporate website wasn't flexible enough to allow for easy access and administration. DCP's solution was to design the new online magazine as a microsite with a simple content management system built in, making it easy for hospital personnel to upload new content frequently. The site also functions as a central destination for content promoted through their various social media tools. Because the microsite is framed into the main website's architecture, it appears to the visitor as a seamless feature of the main site. Sequoia Hospital now uses timely and interesting news, features, videos, and social media links to engage consumer attention and interaction.

Sequoia Hospital's Sequoia Health Magazine can be viewed here.
