Miller Children’s Nursing Excellence Designated with Prestigious Magnet® Recognition
On January 16, 2013, Miller Children’s was granted Magnet® designation by the American Nurses Credentialing Center (ANCC). Miller Children’s joins the Magnet community — a select group of 395 health care organizations out of nearly 6,000 U.S. health care organizations internationally to receive this distinct honor.
ANCC conducts thorough evaluations of hospitals seeking recognition, judging proficiency and leadership in five key areas that are considered global issues in nursing and health care:
To achieve Magnet recognition, Miller Children’s passed a rigorous and lengthy process that demanded widespread participation from leadership and staff. The process began with the submission of an electronic application, followed by written documentation demonstrating qualitative and quantitative evidence regarding patient care and outcomes. The scores from the written documentation fell within a range of excellence and an on-site visit was scheduled to thoroughly assess Miller Children’s. After this rigorous on-site review, the Commission on Magnet reviewed the completed appraisal report and voted to determine whether Magnet recognition was to be granted.
Miller Children’s is proud to be a Magnet-recognized organization, as the credential reinforces our dedication to quality patient and family centered care.
