New York—November 16, 2011
The American Nurses Credentialing Center (ANCC) today announced that Hospital for Special Surgery in New York has received its third Magnet designation, a status shared by only a select group across the country.
Accepted throughout the healthcare industry as the gold standard for nursing, the Magnet program recognizes healthcare institutions that epitomize outstanding quality and professionalism and adhere to and exceed national nursing standards. In recent years, the ANCC implemented even stricter designation criteria, making this year’s Magnet designation especially significant.
“This Magnet recognition highlights the extraordinary skill and compassion of our nursing staff and exemplifies the commitment of everyone at HSS to providing patients with an unsurpassed experience while in our care,” said Louis A. Shapiro, president and chief executive officer at Hospital for Special Surgery.
