For the fourth time, Medical City Dallas has achieved an honor for their nursing excellence. The Magnet Recognition Program identifies top healthcare organizations who truly value their nursing operations and performance. This distinction is presented by the American Nurses Credentialing Center, a resource for nursing professionals. Known as the highest national honor for nursing practice, the elite Magnet Recognition has been achieved by 477 worldwide healthcare organizations, including Medical City Dallas. The hospital is proud to be included in this prestigious program. To obtain this recognition, hospitals must meet rigorous nursing requirements and standards.
Medical City Dallas CEO Chris Mowan commends the staff for this achievement. “Magnet recognition is a tremendous honor and reflects our commitment to delivering the highest quality of care to this community,” Mowan said. “To earn Magnet recognition once was a great accomplishment and an incredible source of pride for our nurses. Our repeated achievement of this credential underscores the foundation of excellence and values that drive our entire staff to deliver outstanding, compassionate care to the community we serve.”
The gold standard for nursing excellence, the Magnet recognition appears as one of the inpatient care quality ranking elements for the U.S. News & World Report’s annual collection of America’s Best Hospitals. Medical City Dallas has also been recognized as one of America’s Best Hospitals in the past. Learn more about the Magnet Model and the criteria needed for success here. Healthcare organizations must reapply for the Magnet Recognition Program every four years. Patient care and quality policies need to not only be in place but also be proven by successful demonstration. This Magnet program provides a framework for the nursing practice and the overall performance expected to truly represent nursing excellence.
