Children's Facebook page named one of the best hospital pages

FB screen grabChildren’s Hospital Boston’s Facebook fan page was recently given the honor of being named one of the “Best Hospital Facebook Pages” in the children’s hospital category by the social media and e-commerce blog Alert Presence.

Here’s what they have to say about Children’s Facebook fan page:

Children’s Hospital Boston has created a Facebook page by which all other hospital pages should be judged.  It’s so impressive it inspired a future Alert Presence article, “The Anatomy of a Great Hospital Facebook Page.”  The expertly designed profile picture, beautifully presented tab pages and even their own viral marketing Facebook applications have all contributed to the page attracting over 90,000 fans.

If you have a minute to browse the page, we suggest you view the “interact” tab which contains the Flu Fighter, I Saved a Life and Get Well Soon applications.

We are approaching 100,000 fans. So, if you haven’t already, please show Children’s your support by becoming a Facebook fan.
