Winthrop-University Hospital has recently received national recognition for excellence in nursing from the American Nurses Credentialing Center’s (ANCC) Magnet Recognition Program. The highest recognition that a hospital can earn in the area of nursing excellence, Magnet Recognition Program designation is considered the gold standard. With this credential, Winthrop joins the Magnet community—a select group of 426 healthcare organizations out of nearly 6,000 U.S. healthcare organizations.

“Magnet recognition provides our community with the ultimate benchmark to measure the quality of patient care and Winthrop-University Hospital is proud to earn this prestigious designation,” said John F. Collins, president and CEO of Winthrop-University Hospital.

The Magnet Recognition Program is the ultimate credential for high-quality nursing. It recognizes healthcare organizations whose nursing staff consistently delivers superior patient care with the highest levels of professionalism and innovation.

“Winthrop-University Hospital is an extremely special place. Our nurses embody the core values of collaboration, compassion, education, integrity, innovation, and cultural sensitivity and they hold excellence in their hands every day,” said Christine Marsiello, MSN, RN-BC, NEA-BC, director of professional nursing practice and education, and magnet program director at Winthrop, who helped lead the Hospital on this multi-year journey towards Magnet recognition. “Achieving this great honor is just the beginning. We remain dedicated to striving to always achieve the very best in patient care.”

Benefits of Magnet recognition include:

• Higher patient satisfaction with nurse communication, availability of help, and receipt of discharge information
• Lower risk of 30-day mortality and lower failure to rescue
• Higher job satisfaction among nurses and
• Lower nurse reports of intentions to leave position.
