Children's National Medical Center Achieves Magnet Designation
Date:3/23/2010

r. “Hundreds of nurses representing every unit have participated in this process, which celebrates and documents nursing excellence, quality patient care, and innovations in our professional nursing practice.”
   
Only 6 percent of hospitals across the country have achieved Magnet status, putting Children’s National among an elite group of healthcare facilities nationwide. Magnet hospitals are recognized as having improved safety practices, lower patient mortality rates, and higher patient and family satisfaction. Magnet status serves as a benchmark for many families looking to assess the high quality of care they can expect to receive.
   
“This is a significant day in Children’s history,” said Edwin K. Zechman Jr., president and CEO of Children’s National. “Children’s National is committed to nursing excellence, and through the Magnet program, our nurses have demonstrated their contribution to the quality care for which we are known. I am proud of the leadership demonstrated by so many nurses across our organization to earn this important national recognition. Children’s National nurses are innovators, leaders, researchers, educators, and advocates for the patients and families for whom they care.”
   
“I echo the sentiments of Children’s leadership in celebrating with our nurses this designation by the ANCC,” said Peter R. Holbrook, MD, executive vice president and chief medical officer of Children’s National. “We recognize the day-to-day leadership role nurses play in assuring a safe and caring environment. Magnet status highlights nursing’s leadership and affirms Children’s reputation regionally, nationally, and internationally, a reputation earned based on the quality care patients and families receive.”
