Advocate Christ Medical Center Redesignated A 'Magnet' Hospital - the Highest Nursing Honor
Date:9/16/2009

Following a three-day site survey and comprehensive follow-up analysis, the American Nurses Credentialing Center (ANCC) has re-designated Advocate Christ Medical Center and Hope Children's Hospital in Oak Lawn, Ill. a "Magnet" institution.

(Vocus) September 16, 2009 -- Following a three-day site survey and comprehensive follow-up analysis, the American Nurses Credentialing Center (ANCC) has re-designated Advocate Christ Medical Center and Hope Children's Hospital in Oak Lawn, Ill. a "Magnet" institution.
   
Magnet status is the highest professional honor accorded in nursing. It sets apart a hospital as an institution of the highest excellence, quality care, evidenced-based practices and patient safety. Studies indicate that Magnet hospitals achieve better overall patient outcomes, shorter lengths of patient stays in the hospital, higher rates of patient satisfaction and greater cost efficiencies.
   
Magnet re-designation puts the medical center among a select group of health care institutions. Only 2 percent of hospitals in the country have achieved re-designation.
   
"Many hospitals can make claims about delivering superior care, but Magnet designation gives Christ Medical Center and Hope Children's Hospital credible, third-part validation that nursing care - and care in general here - is outstanding," said Darcie Brazel RN MSN, market chief nurse executive for Christ Medical Center-Hope Children's Hospital and for Advocate Trinity Hospital.
   
The medical center first gained Magnet status in 2005, following two years of rigorous preparation and evaluation. It was the first Advocate Health Care hospital to achieve Magnet designation. O
