There are some important things to consider when deciding whether you need a CMS behind your website.
A CMS (Content Management System) does not make bad content good. In other words, your content will be easier to publish and manage with a CMS, but it will only be as good as the people who produce it. There are some downsides to using a CMS such as limited ability to customize the design. For clients where a CMS is a project requirement and design customization is equally important, Medical Web Experts typically proposes a “Hybrid-CMS Site”.
What is a Hybrid CMS Site?
A Hybrid CMS Site is a site that utilizes a CMS for some content, and hard-coded web pages for other.  The Medical Web Experts site (www.medicalwebexperts.com) is an example of that, so is EliteHealth (www.elitehealth.com). Both of these sites have some elements which are hard-coded, such as the home page, about us page and main pages and other elements, such as the news, blog and article sections utilizing a back-end CMS. The concept of the Hybrid CMS is to put frequently changing content, such as news in a CMS so that it can be updated easier and relatively static content such as that found on a home page or the about us page in hard-coded pages.
