Feb 02, 2012, 10:56 ET from UHS-Pruitt Corporation

NORCROSS, Ga., Feb. 2, 2012 /PRNewswire/ -- UHS-Pruitt Corporation today announced the launch of an innovative new online health care learning resource center. This tool was the brainchild of Chairman and C.E.O., Neil L. Pruitt, Jr., who envisioned the design of an easy to maneuver web tool for the average individual who had questions about the basics of healthcare delivery. "It is our hope that the new web resource will empower consumers in understanding their options," Pruitt said, "and that it lends the insight and direction they need to take control of a medical care program."

Visitors to the health care learning resources center ( are greeted with a video introduction that directs attention to the topic tool bars to access information about common health care subjects. Most of the information that can be found is concerning home health care, hospice, and skilled nursing and rehabilitation services; including a highly informative section about payment options. Recognizing that financial concerns are high on the list of worries for patients and their loved ones, UHS-Pruitt has presented information about financial options that lend clarity to the complex subject.

Other sections visitors can browse include common condition topics such as hypertension and stroke, and a health and wellness section that offers tips and suggestions for living a healthy lifestyle, staying safe, and offering  healthy recipes to try. If guests do not find the answers they are looking for or need more information, they are invited to share their questions with a healthcare professional via a quick and easy web form right on the home page. Neil Pruitt asserted, "UHS-Pruitt Corporation created the Health Care Learning Resource center, not to market its services, but to simply offer the kind of information patients and family members are seeking when making complex and important health care decisions."
