Faculty and staff now have a whole new electronic view of City of Hope through a redesigned and reorganized employee intranet that launched Nov. 2.
The updated Web site, which remains at www.coh.org, allows City of Hope to better communicate internally with employees. It also was revised to be consistent with City of Hope’s brand identity and strategic plan.

A new layout and architecture provides staff with more user-friendly navigation and easier access to the content most relevant to them. The site will present frequently updated information important to employees in one central place.
Staff members from the Communications, Information Technology and Human Resources departments worked together to redesign and rebuild the site to make finding information more intuitive and efficient and create a sense of focus, unity and modernity.
The new site came about through a team effort, said Frank Simmons, senior director of Web marketing. “It would have been impossible without input from faculty and staff members throughout City of Hope,” Simmons said.
The institution’s leaders were deeply involved in and committed to the redesign, he noted. Alexandra Levine, M.D., chief medical officer, and Robert Figlin, M.D., Arthur and Rosalie Kaplan Professor of Medical Oncology, provided oversight of areas related to patient care. Richard Jove, Ph.D., Beckman Research Institute director, and Doug Stahl, vice president of clinical operations, provided guidance on organization of research content.
City of Hope employees in individual departments will continue to form a key part of the Web content creation process as the site evolves. Those wanting to update or change text or other content may send an e-mail to email@example.com or use the “request for service,” or RFS, process available on the employee intranet.
Staff already authorized to make content changes to the previous intranet will receive training on the content management system, often referred to as CMS, over the coming months. New users also will receive CMS training as needed.
The former City of Hope intranet site will be available internally for a limited time on a test server. Anyone with questions about the site may contact firstname.lastname@example.org.
