NYU Langone Medical Center’s Tisch Hospital and Rusk Rehabilitation announced June 24 that they have received Magnet recognition for nursing excellence for the third consecutive time from the American Nurses Credentialing Center.
“This accomplishment recognizes not only our excellence in nursing, but our ability to provide the highest quality patient care that exceeds the expectations of those who trust us with their lives,” Kimberly Glassman, RN, PhD, NEA-BC, senior vice president of patient care services and CNO, said in a news release. “Our nurses set the standard in terms of quality, compassionate care and I want to thank our team, and the entire medical center, for helping us to achieve this prestigious designation.”
According to ANCC’s website, only 401 hospitals in the U.S. and 22 in New York State are designated as Magnet facilities. Magnet recognition is an honor achieved by only 7% of U.S. hospitals.
“I am extremely proud of our entire nursing staff for retaining Magnet status since 2005 and for being recognized as some of the most highly educated, talented, and caring nursing professionals in the country,” Robert I. Grossman, MD, dean and CEO of NYU Langone, said in the release. “To achieve this designation once was a monumental accomplishment, and yet our nurses have done so three consecutive times. Such an honor is a testament to the dedication and commitment of all the staff.”
NYU Langone is one of four hospitals in New York State and less than 2% of hospitals nationwide to receive this recognition at least three times consecutively, the release said.
The Magnet designation is granted every four years to organizations that demonstrate sustained superiority in nursing care.
