Deaconess received Magnet designation under the name Deaconess Hospital, Inc., which includes three hospitals – Deaconess Hospital, Deaconess Gateway Hospital and Deaconess Cross Pointe.
Deaconess earned Magnet designation after a thorough and lengthy application process. The process included documenting and reporting clinical results and patient outcomes as well as a four-day, on-site visit by a team of appraisers. Designation lasts four years after which time the organization must apply for re-designation.
The American Nurses Credentialing Center (ANCC) ® is the most prestigious distinction a health care organization can receive for nursing excellence and quality patient outcomes. Organizations that achieve Magnet recognition are part of an esteemed group that demonstrates superior nursing practices and outcomes.
Congratulations to everyone at Deaconess for this amazing achievement!
