Hahnemann University Hospital Granted Magnet(R) Status

Nursing Care at Hahnemann among the Best in the Nation

PHILADELPHIA, Dec. 16 /PRNewswire-USNewswire/ -- Hahnemann University Hospital proudly announces it has been granted Magnet(R) recognition by the American Nurses Credentialing Center's (ANCC) Magnet Recognition Program(R). Magnet(R) is one of the highest levels of recognition a hospital or medical center can achieve, and places Hahnemann among the five percent of hospitals in the country that have achieved this prestigious distinction.

At 9:00 am on Monday, Hahnemann Administrators and medical staff gathered with employees in the Hospital's Geary Auditorium to hear the official news of the designation directly from the ANCC via conference call.

"Hahnemann is honored to be recognized by such a prestigious organization," stated Stephanie Conners, M.B.A., B.S.N., chief nursing officer. "We have always believed that nursing care at Hahnemann is among the best in the nation and we are thrilled to be granted Magnet(R) status to officially validate our efforts."

The Magnet Recognition Program(R) awards health care organizations that exhibit the highest quality in nursing practice and adherence to national standards for the organization and delivery of nursing services.

Magnet applicants face a stringent evaluation that consists of interviews and an all encompassing evaluation of nursing services. Research has confirmed that there are apparent benefits to hospitals that are awarded Magnet(R) status 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 recognized facilities consistently outperform other facilities in recruiting and retaining nurses resulting in increased stability in patient care and patient satisfaction.
  • Because quality nursing is one of the most important factors in enlisting high caliber physicians and specialists, Magnet status becomes an attractive force that extends to the entire facility.

"Being granted Magnet(R) status is an honor made possible by the hard work and dedication of everyone at Hahnemann, and their ability and desire to work together as a team to provide the best environment for our patients," stated Michael P. Halter, FACHE, chief executive officer.

ANCC is the largest and most prominent nursing credentialing organization in the United States. Hahnemann University Hospital's Magnet(R) status is valid for four years.

Hahnemann University Hospital is a 540-bed academic medical center at Broad and Vine Streets in Philadelphia, Pa. The hospital is a tertiary care institution that specializes in cardiac services, heart failure and transplantation, OB/GYN, orthopedics, medical, surgical and radiation oncology, bone marrow transplantation, renal dialysis and kidney/pancreas/liver transplantation. Hahnemann is recognized by the American Heart Association as a leader in coronary artery disease and heart failure treatments. The hospital performed one of the city's first kidney transplants in 1963 and one of the first bone marrow transplants in 1976. Hahnemann became Philadelphia's first Level I Regional Resource Trauma Center for adults in 1986, and since then has been served by MidAtlantic MedEvac, an aeromedical transport program for critically ill patients. Hahnemann is proud to be the first hospital in Philadelphia to join with The Wellness Community of Philadelphia to offer onsite support and education services to cancer patients and their families. Hahnemann is fully accredited by the Joint Commission on the Accreditation of Healthcare Organizations, the nation's oldest and largest hospital accreditation agency. An affiliate of Drexel University College of Medicine, Hahnemann University Hospital is part of Tenet Pennsylvania, which also includes St. Christopher's Hospital for Children.
