Huntington (N.Y.) Hospital, a member of the North Shore-LIJ Health System, has been designated as a Magnet hospital for the third consecutive time by the American Nurses Credentialing Center’s Magnet Recognition Program for excellence in nursing services.

“Our initial Magnet designation 10 years ago raised the bar on patient care and inspired all of us — nurses, physicians, professional and support staff — to strive to be even better,” Susan Knoepffler, RN, MPH, Huntington’s vice president of nursing and CNO, said in the release.

Only 86 of the nation’s 5,724 hospitals have attained Magnet status three times or more, according to the ANCC, and only about 7% are Magnet accredited.
