For the second time, Stanford (Calif.) Hospital & Clinics has achieved Magnet status from the American Nurses Credentialing Center, earning an honor fewer than 7% of U.S. healthcare organizations accomplish.
“Magnet recognition is a tremendous honor and reflects our commitment to delivering the highest quality of care to our community,” Nancy Lee, RN, MSN, CNO and vice president of patient care services, said in a news release. “To earn Magnet recognition once, as we did in 2007, was a great accomplishment and an incredible source of pride for our nurses. Our achievement of Magnet designation for an additional four years underscores the foundation of excellence and values that drives our entire staff to strive harder each day to meet the healthcare needs of the people we serve.”
Magnet recognition has become the gold standard for nursing excellence and is taken into consideration when the public judges healthcare organizations.
“Being recognized as a Magnet hospital is a testament to the outstanding nursing staff we have here at Stanford Hospital & Clinics,” president and CEO Amir Dan Rubin, said in a news release. “Our focus is always on delivering the absolute best care to each and every patient we serve. We are so fortunate to have a team of stellar and dedicated nurses who live this vision each and every day.”
Stanford Hospital & Clinics was awarded Magnet status in 2007. Hospitals must reapply every four years. •
