PROVIDENCE, RI (PRWEB) September 16, 2004 -–
Finding Health and Wellness information is a daunting task for many people. Verizon SuperPages has created a solution for making this search easier for consumers. The new 2004-2005 SuperPages telephone directory for Providence, Rhode Island, includes a Health and Wellness guide, which simplifies sometimes-complex medical listings by putting all health- and medical-related headings in one easy-to-find place and by using simple, non-technical terms to describe businesses and specialties. The section helps consumers accurately locate healthcare topics such as medical doctors, counseling services, medical supplies, chiropractors, plastic surgery and treatment centers.
The Healthcare industry is one of the most dynamic, developing industries today. This growth has affected yellow pages usage – in the top 25 most searched/used categories in phone directories, 4 are related to healthcare: Physicians & Surgeons (2), Dentists (8), Hospitals (11) and Pharmacies (21). The growing numbers of healthcare providers want to be found quickly by their patients and consumers, but most people have trouble finding healthcare providers. Research indicates that almost one-third of people have difficulty locating medical information, typically having to look under two or more sections to find what they need. The Health and Wellness guide is designed so that consumers and patients can easily navigate through the yellow pages to find medical information.
In addition to the Providence, Rhode Island, Health and Wellness guide, Verizon SuperPages has launched the Health and Wellness guide in other telephone directories across the U.S. – Manhattan, NY, Boston, MA, New Brunswick, Nassau County, NY, Oahu, HI, Richmond, VA, Worcester, MA, and Syracuse, NY.
