9 of the Best Medical Website Designs You Have to See
When it comes to your healthcare organization’s online presence, the medical website design is arguably the most critical element. It acts as the digital front door of your practice, with the power to attract new patients just by making an outstanding first impression.
Whether patients know it or not, your medical website design sets subconscious expectations for the quality of care and services offered. Doctors and practices that utilize modern, patient-centered web design principles convey a commitment to providing a high-quality experience right from the initial click.
As medical website designers, we create hundreds of custom healthcare sites per year. Each has unique branding, visuals, imagery and artistic touches to showcase the practice, providers and services offered.
Of the many medical website designs we’ve completed this year, here are 9 of our favorites.

The Current Trends for Creating Medical Website Designs
Website design standards, technology and best practices are always evolving. Remember when flash was a thing? Or using images as the background of buttons?
Today’s technology enables such a wide range of creativity and ways to digitally express your brand and services. Yet at the core, the fundamentals remain the same for medical website designs.
- Focus on the patient and giving them the information they need as directly as possible.
- Make it super easy for visitors to contact you, request an appointment, or engage with self-tests and interative elements on your website.
- Personalize the experience. Help patients form a connection with their doctors by providing detailed information about the doctors and your practice itself.
- Stand out from the competition. Use graphic design, UX/UI and content to rise above the competition.
- The design has to be responsive and work across all devices. This includes accessibility with keyboard navigation and screenreaders.
- Optimize for usability, technical functionality, and aesthetics.
- Move away from proprietary software to building on open-source an CMS.
- Work with professionals. Just because you can do a version of it yourself, does not mean you can do a professional version of it yourself.
Predicting What the Best Medical Website Designs of Tomorrow Will Look Like
If you’ve been online at least a few years, you know that web design does not stop evolving. It’s continual progress and updates. Over the coming years, we anticipate things such as generative AI, search generative experience, AR/VR, programming language ehancements, and shifting media preferences will continue to force healthcare practices to adapt their website designs and structures accordingly.
Just like art, styles and genres change with time. The websites for doctors and healthcare practices of tomorrow will probably look a lot different than those of today.
But for now, use these examples above as inspiration for your own website and above all else, make sure the patient is the hero of your website.
And if you’re looking for a new medical website design for your practice that will separate you from the competition and convert more visitors into patients, call Glacial today and let’s get started.
