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. Only six percent of hospitals nationally have achieved this honor and status, and only three percent of hospitals have achieved redesignation. Read our 2010 redesignation document to learn more about our organization’s efforts to advance our culture of excellence.
