About this site
This Web site is intended to serve as a clearinghouse of news, articles, facts and photos about all of the people and programs that make up Yale-New Haven Hospital. The highlighted stories come from a variety of our internal and external publications, including Impact magazine, Yale-New Haven Magazine, the Bulletin employee newsletter, press releases and links to articles found in mainstream media outlet Web sites. DiscoverYNHH.org also provides a wealth of facts and figures about the hospital, including an overview of employee benefits, a summary of our annual employee survey, a review of our community initiatives and partnerships and much more. Additionally, this Web site provides the opportunity to go beyond the confines of the main hospital Web site to recognize and publically thank all of the valued employees, volunteers and community partners.
Unless otherwise noted, Yale-New Haven Hospital can be considered the author of the content appearing on this site. Funding of www.DiscoverYNHH.org is provided solely by Yale-New Haven Hospital.
The following policies guide us in managing this site:
This site is intended for communication of information with broad appeal to the general public regarding people and programs that make up Yale-New Haven Hospital. Authors of content work with the site's editor to ensure the content supports the hospital's vision guiding site development. The information conveyed on this site does not provide medical advice or treatment for medical conditions.
Submission of materials
All materials developed for the site are submitted to the site editor for review and approval prior to posting on www.DiscoverYNHH.org. Links to sites outside the Web site are allowed if they contribute to the user's understanding of the topic and the destination content is primarily of educational nature. The editor is made aware of the source of the information and each graphic, photograph or piece of art to be posted and requires the source to be stated in the material if outside Yale-New Haven Hospital.
Written permission has been obtained from the copyright holder to post any information or graphic material for which Yale-New Haven Hospital does not possess copyright or a license to use.
With very limited exceptions for functionality, every page of the site carries the official YNHH logo indicating the information is being provided by Yale-New Haven Hospital, a feedback mechanism or contact point for obtaining further information.
To facilitate site navigation and the presence of appropriate legal information, most content appears within the official page template. Exceptions are limited and for the purpose of functionality. Exceptions to the use of the official page template are at the discretion of the site editor.
This site strives to be accessible to as many of its identified target audience as feasible within the site's financial constraints. Care has been taken to provide ALT tags where graphics are used, particularly those that serve as hyperlinks. This assists those browsing without graphics and those who employ special adaptive browsing software.
Content is tested for quality of presentation on the most commonly used versions of several different browsers, again to improve accessibility.
Where appropriate, links are provided on this site to material outside of Yale-New Haven Hospital's control. In general, the organizations to which we link are mainstream media Web sites or the main hospital Web site and other hospital-related Web sites (e.g., the hospital’s YouTube Web site, Twitter account, etc.). The links themselves should clearly indicate the destination organization. Yale-New Haven Hospital includes such links for the convenience of the user, but does not control or take responsibility for their content. In areas where the editor believes the user may be confused as to ownership/authorship, a disclaimer will be posted to make the relationship clear. The DiscoverYNHH.org site does not accept advertising. Users are invited to provide feedback concerning the quality of the material found when following a link off the DiscoverYNHH.org Web site. The site editor considers this feedback in determining whether the YNHH site should continue to post the link.
We attempt to offer E-mail contact points where possible to foster ease of site use and two-way communication. We attempt to provide a response, when feasible, within 10 business days upon receipt.
