A Glimpse Into our Magnet® Journey

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.

Join Our Team

You, too, can become part of a winning team. Nurses looking for the opportunity and challenge to learn from our amazing nurses can join us at one of our upcoming nursing fairs on January 31 from 7 am to 3 pm or February 1 from 9 am to 3 pm at Emory University Hospital in the second floor auditorium or Emory University Hospital Midtown in the Glenn Auditorium.

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!
