Tisch Hospital and Rusk Institute of Rehabilitation at NYU Langone Medical Center earned Magnet re-designation from the American Nurses Credentialing Center. The new four-year Magnet recognition acknowledges the New York City medical center’s continued success in delivering high-caliber patient-centered care as well as innovation in professional nursing.

“This achievement is a true benchmark of the quality care our nurses provide and highlights our focus on providing an exemplary workplace,” Susan Bowar-Ferres, RN, PhD, NEA-BC, senior vice president and chief nursing officer at NYU Langone Medical Center, said in a news release. “In addition, nursing could not have achieved this recognition without the support of the entire hospital which enables our nurses to continue providing patients with high-caliber patient-centered care.”

Less than 6% of U.S. hospitals have received Magnet recognition and those who receive the designation must re-apply every four years. The designation also recognizes an institution’s professional work environment, employee retention, and ability to provide bedside patient care with a focus on excellent patient outcomes.
