District 4 Public Health is proud to announce the release of our brand-new website, which features a modern layout and bright color palette. Our goal for the site is to provide a refined user experience that will help residents access all that we have to offer. The new site is intuitive and mobile-friendly. Whether you are a potential patient, a community partner, on-the-go, or at work, you can now easily navigate through the content to quickly find what you need.
As one of the largest public health districts in Georgia, District 4 is responsible for serving more than 850,000 individuals across 12 counties. Our population is varied—the region includes rural and urban areas, speaks to multi-lingual communities, and spans economic classes. Because each county has unique public health needs, our website must ensure visitors can readily find the services available to them. The new site addresses these challenges by highlighting individual county service offerings, as well as our two call centers that are available to take appointments and answer questions. It also features community partners that support each county and includes a new resources page to provide one central location to find external services and programs.
Dr. Olugbenga Obasanjo, District 4 Health Director, said, “We started working on this site earlier this year, so when COVID-19 became our priority, we had to decide if we should put the website on hold. During our emergency response, we quickly realized that our responsibility to disseminate information to the public was more important than ever, so we continued with the project. It was the right decision. We look forward to using our new clean, accessible platform to serve our district better.”
The overall look and feel of the site reflect our core values of innovation, quality and accountability. Its navigation structure is simple, yet robust, addressing our district’s top concerns by making highly visited pages and topics easier to find. The new design is distinct and inviting, incorporating a striking new color scheme that integrates with the Department of Public Health’s red and black palette. Its main sections describe our quality health care services and our role within the region with great detail and precision, ensuring a visitor performs minimal clicks to find what they need.
We hired Marietta agency 524 Creative to develop the website. Principal April Wright said, “We are so impressed with District 4’s team, who was committed to this project, even amidst a public health crisis. Public health holds a huge responsibility in our community, which people are only just now starting to comprehend. With this new site, the public can get a clear understanding of the breadth of services and resources District 4 provides, not just during a crisis, but 24/7. We are grateful to partner with District 4 and hope the site will be an invaluable tool for them and the communities they serve.”
