The campaign is featured in a variety of media outlets, including print, billboard, web-based, posters, t-shirts, bumper stickers, bus ads, and more.  

 Siskin Hospital’s website has been entirely redesigned, including a complete overhaul of all components and features. Siskin Hospital partnered with Papercut Interactive to develop and build the website. The site map was reconfigured for user-friendly navigation in order to provide better dissemination of information.

The site also features a customized search option, photo galleries, online donation capabilities, and is responsive, making it adaptable for viewing on a variety of mobile devices.
