Magnet Recognition

magnet pin image Northwestern Memorial Hospital received Magnet designation from the American Nurses Credentialing Center in June 2006, and was redesignated for another four years in December 2010.

Magnet status is awarded to organizations that demonstrate excellence in nursing practice, exemplary quality outcomes, and an environment that fosters shared leadership and decision-making.

Only six percent of hospitals nationally have achieved this honor and status, and only three percent of hospitals have achieved redesignation.

Benefits of Magnet

  • Research shows that a Magnet status provides clear benefits to the hospitals and to the communities they serve.

  • Healthcare consumers have more confidence in the overall quality of a hospital if it has achieved the level of excellence established by the Magnet Recognition Program.

  • Magnet designated facilities consistently outperform other facilities in recruiting and retaining nurses, resulting in increased stability in patient care and patient satisfaction.

  • High caliber physicians and specialists often cite a quality nursing staff as an important factor in their decision to work at a hospital. Because of this, our Magnet status reaches beyond excellent nursing care to the entire hospital.
