The Latest on our New CookNet

cooknet sneak peak (2)

We hope you met this news with excitement, but we also understand you may have a lot of questions.

Our Digital Experience team in Information Services wrote the following to explain a bit more about the new site:

What is happening to CookNet?

CookNet has served our employees for a very long time, it has helped us communicate with our workforce for almost two decades, but now it is time for a new transformation. CookNet always has and will continue to serve as our main enterprise intranet.

We are embarking on the next generation (next-gen) of CookNet. This next-gen CookNet will be able to bring you a personalized experience, things like content, news, event, documents, policies that are relevant to you based on your company, department, job role, team and more.

During the transformation, we want to reassure you that the CookNet (new legacy) will remain functional and accessible until the transformation of the next-gen CookNet is complete.

As we embark on this journey of transformation together, we will work with all the teams that have content on the CookNet (legacy) to get their site/content recreated on the new next-gen CookNet.

What do I need to do recreate my site in the new CookNet ?

  • If you have content on the CookNet (legacy), Click Here, to begin the intake process of building out your new site/presence.
  • If you have any questions, please contact IS Digital Experience team at ISdigitalExp@cookchildrens.org .

We’ve also begun an FAQ. You have questions, email us at InternalCommunications@cookchildrens.org


Is the Current CookNet going away?  

No, this is a “soft launch” of the new and improved CookNet. That means that only a new homepage and new physician and occupational health sites have been built on the modernized CookNet.  Once the new homepage is live, a link will be added in the current CookNet to direct you to a new homepage with a more dynamic, sleek, and modern user experience. All links on the new homepage should direct you to back the current CookNet pages you use today.  

What will happen to the content and information I use on CookNet today?  

All current content on CookNet will remain available until further notice. The current CookNet sites and pages will coexist and still be available while the new CookNet is built over time. We will be identifying content authors to work with our transition team to learn how to create and maintain content on the new CookNet.  

Can I still create new pages or add new content to the current CookNet?  

Yes, we encourage you to continue to create and maintain content on the current CookNet site. Once a new version of the site has been implemented on the new Cooknet, the old site will remain available in a read-only mode.
