Emory Nurses are Amazing! Emory University Hospital Receives Prestigious Magnet Designation!

Emory University Hospital Magnet DesignationCongratulations to Emory University Hospital, who just received designation as a Magnet® facility from the American Nurses Credentialing Center! This outstanding achievement is a significant milestone for Emory University Hospital and the culmination of the relentless pursuit of excellence on the part of our nurses, physicians and staff.

So, what does Magnet mean to you, our patients? Magnet designation means that:

  • We’re all in this together. Our nurses work in a collaborative environment and benefit from each other’s knowledge and breadth of experience.
  • Our nurses are the cream of the crop! Magnet facilities regularly attract and retain top nursing talent.
  • You can feel confident that you’re in good hands. The Magnet Recognition Program establishes standards of excellence which health care organizations like ours must attain and maintain.

We’re particularly proud that with this recent recognition, Emory Healthcare becomes the only health system in Georgia to have two hospitals designated as Magnet facilities – Emory Saint Joseph’s Hospital, and now, Emory University Hospital! Currently, there are fewer than 400 Magnet-designated facilities around the globe, and six of those are in the state of Georgia. We couldn’t be prouder that Emory University Hospital has joined the ranks of these distinguished facilities!

We’d also like to thank all of our amazing nurses and nursing leaders for their perseverance and dedication on our road to Magnet designation. If you have an Emory nurse you’d like to give a special shout out to, let us know!

    My husband was in Emory Hospital several times and we were most impressed by the wonderful nursing care he received. Life was such that I did not, at that time publically tell how easy they made his stay. The nurses here at Emory Saint Joseph’s rivel the nurses at Emory I would be very hard put to say that one is better tan the other. Since I have some of their names – not all I fear, I would like to thank Lisa, Stephanie, Holly, Jennifer,Vanessa,Thesia, Andre, and several whose names I have not written down all on the third floor. You are making a difficult stay bearable and even cheerful. We have full confidence and congratulate both hospitals for their well deserved honor.
    Another local hospital has switched to “hospitalists” and I have heard horror stories about the care there. It may be saving hospitals money, but I have heard from different people who have been in different hospitals whose loved ones suffered badly, 2 died in pain because the hospitalists did not refer to the last hospitslists notes. I hope the fad to no longer allow a personal physician take cars of his/her own patient, goes away before too many people suffer. At Emory, perhaps because of all the students, we did not have to deal with that.
    Congratulations again to both hospitals and thank you further for having a computer system where you can merge records and save us much repetition.
