Northwestern Memorial earns magnet status for nursing excellence

CHICAGO Northwestern Memorial Hospital has officially received Magnet status, the gold standard for nursing excellence and an honor that recognizes an organizational commitment to the best in patient care. The hospital was notified of the decision Thursday by the American Nurses Credentialing Center.

Approximately 3 percent of the nation's 5,700 hospitals and healthcare organizations have been recognized with Magnet status and only 33 of those are academic medical centers. "This is an honor that builds on our Patients First mission and recognizes the exceptional work being done every day by our nurses as well as the caregivers, physicians and employees who distinguish our hospital as one of the leading teaching hospitals in the nation," said Michelle Janney, RN, PhD, CNAA, vice president, Operations and chief nurse executive at Northwestern Memorial.

Hundreds of employees throughout the organization contributed time and effort to the Magnet application and review process, which culminated with a three-day site visit by the American Nurses Credentialing Center in May.

The Magnet Recognition Program was established in 1993 to recognize healthcare organizations that exhibit excellence in nursing, and measures such things as quality of nursing leadership, nurse and physician relationships, quality improvement and opportunities for professional development.
