It just got a whole lot easier to access information about the Austen Riggs Center from virtually anywhere at any time with the recent launch of the new mobile version of our website, built to be fully responsive. Now, wherever you are (home, work, on the go) and whatever device you are using (desktop, tablet, mobile phone), you can access and experience the Austen Riggs website like never before. The web address is the same, the content is the same, but now, users on mobile devices will have a much easier time navigating and conveniently accessing the full depth of information on our website.
So, why does it matter that our site is now “responsive”? Building responsive sites follows the design principle that websites should “respond” to the device on which you’re viewing the site. This means that a responsive site will configure its layout differently depending on whether you’re using a desktop, mobile phone, or tablet.
This is an exciting development for Riggs because of how it enhances our site’s ability to reach patients and their families as they embark on the admissions process, doctors and clinicians as they consider referrals, and even researchers and students as they explore our rich educational content on the go. Our newly responsive site allows anyone with an interest in Riggs to access quick information about Riggs, its news and events, resources and communities, from virtually anywhere on their desktop, tablet or mobile phone.
We are always working to enhance our website in meaningful ways and are really excited about the new mobile version of our website. We encourage you to visit our site on your tablet or mobile phone soon and let us know what you think!
