Achieving Magnet designation is a journey years in the making. Our Emory University Hospital team worked tirelessly to prepare and submit the required Magnet documentation to the ANCC last June. After the ANCC reviewed our lengthy submission, they came on-site last month to meet the nurses, physicians and staff at Emory University Hospital to get a better feel for how our teams collaborate in providing exceptional care. Each and every one of our nurses and the entire Emory University Hospital team embraced the spirit of collaboration and teamwork that it takes to achieve Magnet.
And, it is as a team that we commemorate this fantastic milestone while also pausing to remember our beloved friend and colleague, Emory University Hospital Chief Nursing Officer Becky Provine, who passed away last year.
Magnet was Becky’s passion, and she was a key driving force behind this amazing achievement. We’ll always be grateful for her leadership, commitment and vision.
A Peek Into Our Future
As we look forward to a bright future, here’s what you can continue to expect from us.
- Teamwork – Our nurses, physicians and staff work in a collaborative environment and benefit from each other’s knowledge and breadth of experience. That’s not going to change. Throughout Emory Healthcare, we recognize that nurses play a pivotal role in creating outstanding outcomes and experiences for our patients and their families.
- Excellence – Only seven percent of hospitals in the United States have been recognized with the prestigious Magnet designation. And, it’s more than just an honor. Magnet recognition has been shown to provide specific benefits such as lower mortality rates, lower hospital acquired infection rates and higher patient satisfaction.
- Top talent – As leaders in nursing excellence, we are able to attract and retain the best and brightest nurses from around the country. And, nurses who work at Magnet facilities report higher job satisfaction.
