Einstein Healthcare Network traces its history back to 1866, when it opened as the Jewish Hospital in a 22-bed farmhouse in West Philadelphia.

In 2016, the Einstein Healthcare Network celebrates 150 years of providing world-class medical services to Philadelphia and the surrounding area. To help celebrate this milestone, Bluecadet created a responsive website showcasing the hospital’s rich history and achievements through an immersive interactive timeline.

 

Our content developer spent days digging through archives, pouring through 150 years’ of documents, photos, and ephemera in search of those artifacts that shine light on Einstein’s values and show the human impact of its work. The website weaves these original materials into an interactive timeline that highlights the hospital’s landmark moments, distinguished researchers, and medical breakthroughs.

The interactive timeline includes elegant JavaScript animation, leading the user through Einstein’s history with a smooth cinematic flow. Archival images are prominently featured, and interactive artifact explorations, infographics, and pull quotes are peppered throughout the six chapters of Einstein history.

“It was a highly collaborative effort...Bluecadet was always willing to push a little harder and keep tweaking...Our expectations were high from the beginning, and Bluecadet worked with us to exceed them. We’ve received nothing but praise from inside and outside of our organization.”

Larry Blumenthal, Einstein Digital Communications and Content Strategist

In addition to the timeline, the WordPress-driven website features an integrated blog, event calendar, and social media campaign. These tools support The Einstein Campaign – the largest fundraising undertaking in the network’s history.
